Standards Council considers request for NFPA 16 and NFPA 11 to merge.

At the August 2017 Standards Council meeting, the  Council considered the request of Kenneth Linder, Chair, Automatic Sprinkler Systems Correlating Committee and of NFPA Staff to merge NFPA 16, Standard for the Installation of Foam-Water Sprinkler and Foam-Water Spray Systems into NFPA 11, Standard for Low-Medium-, and High-Expansion Foam during the next revision cycle for NFPA 11. After a review of all information provided, the Council voted to approve the merger of NFPA 16 into a chapter of NFPA 11.  The Council directed that the scope of NFPA 11 be review to determine whether the current scope addresses the provisions of NFPA 16 to be incorporated.  The Council also requests that NFPA Staff review NFPA 16 and NFPA 11 for any inspection, testing, and maintenance issues to make a recommendation as to whether those requirements should be in NFPA 16 or any specific requirements in NFPA 11 be moved to NFPA 25.
