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.


*Applications being accepted for purposes of documenting applicant interest in committee participation. Acceptance of applications by NFPA does not guarantee or imply the Standards Council will ultimately approve standards development activity on this proposed subject matter.
