The NFPA Standards Council has received the following request and is currently soliciting comments by November 18, 2022:
How to submit a request for a new NFPA project
Download a new project initiation form (doc, 26 KB). Requests are forwarded to the NFPA Standards Council for a preliminary review. If deemed appropriate, the Council directs that a notice be published in NFPA News. This notice asks for information or resources on the subject matter, the names of those interested in participating on the Committee (if established), the names of other organizations actively involved with this subject, and whether there is a need for such a project. The Standards Council then reviews the proposed project/document and any public comments generated by the notice. If the Standards Council does determine the need for the proposed project it either assigns the project to an existing Technical Committee or establishes a new committee.
