SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) develops building, fire, and electrical safety codes and standards. Federal agencies frequently use these codes and standards as the basis for developing Federal regulations concerning fire safety. Often, the Office of the Federal Register approves the incorporation by reference of these standards under 5 U.S.C. 552(a) and 1 CFR part 51.

Revisions of existing standards and adoption of new standards are reported by the technical committees to the Standards Council for issuance in January and July of each year. Documents that receive an Intent to Make Motion are automatically held for action at the NFPA's meeting in June of each year. The NFPA invites public comment on its Report on Proposals.

Request for Comments

Interested persons may participate in these revisions by submitting written data, views, or arguments to Casey C. Grant, Secretary, Standards Council, NFPA, 1 Batterymarch Park, Quincy, Massachusetts 02269-9101. Commenters may use the forms provided for comments in the Reports on Proposals. Each person submitting a comment should include his or her name and address, identify the notice, and give reasons for any recommendations. Comments received on or before September 2, 2005 for the 2006 June Cycle Report on Proposals will be considered by the NFPA before final action is taken on the proposals.

Copies of all written comments received and the disposition of those comments by the NFPA committees will be published as the 2006 June Cycle Report on Comments by February 24, 2006.

A copy of the Report on Comments will be sent automatically to each commenter. Reports of the Technical Committees on documents that do not receive an Intent to Make a Motion will automatically be forwarded to the Standards Council for action at its July 28, 2006 meeting. Action on the reports of the Technical Committees on documents that do receive an Intent to Make a Motion will be taken at the June Meeting, June 4-8, 2006, in Orlando, Florida, by NFPA members.
