Technical Committees

An NFPA Technical Committee (TC) serves as the principal consensus body responsible for the development and revision of an NFPA document or documents emanating from a Technical Committee project. Appointment to a Technical Committee is based on: qualifications of the applicant; a balance of interest categories on the committee; maintaining the committee at a manageable working size; and the ability of the applicant to attend and participate in all committee meetings. A Technical Committee member does not need to be an active NFPA association member. E-mail NFPA with any questions about Technical Committees.

Apply for committee membership

To apply for membership on an NFPA Technical Committee, select a document from our list of codes and standards, visit the “Technical Committee” tab, and select the link “Submit Committee application online”. You will be asked to sign-in or create an NFPA account.
