How codes and standards are developed

In November 2010, the NFPA Board of Directors approved a comprehensive set of revisions to the NFPA Regulations Governing Committee Projects, the regulations that govern NFPA’s standards development process. These regulations are called "Regulations Governing the Development of NFPA Standards". These regulations, which include changes to some familiar terms and adds some new terms, are in effect for standards reporting in the Fall 2013 Revision Cycle and all subsequent revision cycles.
