The objectives of the NFPA Architects, Engineers, and Building Officials Section are to:
- Encourage a greater understanding of the many aspects of safety to life and property from fire, structural collapse, and natural perils, such as earthquakes, hurricanes, and floods, among architects and engineers responsible for designing buildings and building officials who administer and enforce legal regulations applying thereto.
- Create opportunities in an environment where mutual understanding and cooperation among architects, engineers, and building officials may be developed and enhanced.
- Create opportunities for leaders to emerge and attain recognition from their peers through elective office and to provide direction and vision for this section.
This section is active and sees an important role for itself in the ongoing development of NFPA 5000, Building Construction and Safety Code®, as the members constitute major stakeholders in the design, permitting, and construction inspection and control process.
