On October 3, 2013, NFPA sponsored the event and displayed NFPA standards and fire safety information at the exhibition and reception. The purpose of celebrating is to raise awareness of how standards have increased efficiency. With over 275 people in attendance, this year’s U.S. Celebration of World’s Standards Day was a tremendous success. More than a dozen standards organizations displayed or participated in the World Standards Day exhibit, reception and dinner gala. In the end, the U.S. Celebration of World Standards Day was very successful this year in bringing the standards community together for fellowship, education and exchange of ideas.

Resources from the Building Energy Code Program (BECP)
The BECP was funded in 1993 in response to the Energy Policy Act of 1992, which mandated that the Department of Energy (DOE) participate in the model national codes development process and that DOE help states adopt and implement progressive energy codes. DOE had been active in the development of energy codes going all the way back to development of ASHRAE Standard 90-75 under the auspices of the Energy Research and Development Administration (DOE's predecessor) but BECP represented the first time energy codes had been given their own program with its own mandates.
