The NFPA Technical Meeting, also known as "Tech Session", is an important element in the standards development process.  The Tech Session ensures that consensus is achieved on proposed changes to NFPA Standards prior to Standards Council review. During this meeting, supporters and opponents of certified motions voice their opinions and NFPA members are given an opportunity to vote on proposed changes. NFPA Technical Meetings are held annually at the NFPA Conference & Expo.

This year's Tech Session will be held at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL, June 24-25.  NFPA will be providing wireless internet access during the Tech Session so attendees have the option of downloading the agenda prior to or during the Tech Session. Other documentation such as First Draft Reports and Second Draft Reports can be viewed on the Next edition tab of each specific document information page.
