Revision Cycle Schedules

Find a code or standard

NFPA Standards are developed and periodically revised through scheduled revision cycles.  The Standards Council Secretary, with approval by the Standards Council, establishes revision cycle schedules for processing NFPA Standards. A new or revised NFPA Standard enters one of two revision cycles (annual or fall).  Each Revision Cycle includes final dates for all critical events in the processing of NFPA Standards, such as a call for Public Input and Public Comments, the Notice of Intent to Make a Motion, the availability of Technical Committee Reports, the NFPA Technical Meeting, and Standards Council issuance. The Standards Council Secretary publishes and makes available these schedules of revision cycles.  See Section 4.2 of the Regulations Governing the Development of NFPA Standards for further information on revision cycle schedules.
