Standards Council considers request for NFPA 16 and NFPA 11 to merge.
The Council considered the request of Kenneth Linder, Chair, Automatic Sprinkler Systems Correlating Committee and NFPA Staff to merge NFPA 16, Standard for the Installation of Foam-Water Sprinkler and Foam-Water Spray Systems into NFPA 11, Standard for Low-Medium-, and High-Expansion Foam at the start of the next revision cycle for NFPA 11 

After a review of all information provided, the Council voted to take no action at this time. The Council has requested NFPA Staff report back to the Council with additional information detailing which installations would be extracted from NFPA 13, Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems and determine if the scope of NFPA 11 needs revisions to include the requested material. The Council also requests that a notice be published to seek comments from the public and the Committees affected by the merger of NFPA 16 into NFPA 11.
