NFPA CODE CYCLE
---------------

The 2007 Edition of NFPA 72 is scheduled to be published in a few
months, which makes this a good time to review the NFPA code-making
process.  NFPA 72 is about to re-enter Step 1 - Call for proposals,
of the 2010 edition.  Here's the sequence:

Sequence of Events Leading to Issuance of an NFPA Committee Document

Step 1 Call for Proposals
* Proposed new Document or new edition of an existing Document is
entered into one of two yearly revision cycles, and a Call for
Proposals is published.

Step 2 Report on Proposals (ROP)
* Committee meets to act on Proposals, to develop its own Proposals,
and to prepare its Report.
* Committee votes by written ballot on Proposals. If two-thirds
approve, Report goes forward. Lacking two-thirds approval, Report
returns to Committee.
* Report on Proposals (ROP) is published for public review and comment.

Step 3 Report on Comments (ROC)
* Committee meets to act on Public Comments to develop its own
Comments, and to prepare its report.
* Committee votes by written ballot on Comments. If two-thirds approve,
Reports goes forward. Lacking two-thirds approval, Report returns to
Committee.
* Report on Comments (ROC) is published for public review.

Step 4 Technical Report Session
* "Notices of intent to make a motion" are filed, are reviewed, and
valid motions are certified for presentation at the Technical Report
Session. ("Consent Documents" that have no certified motions bypass
the Technical Report Session and proceed to the Standards Council for
issuance.)
* NFPA membership meets each June at the Annual Meeting Technical
Report Session and acts on
* Technical Committee Reports (ROP and ROC) for Documents with
"certified amending motions."
* Committee(s) vote on any amendments to Report approved at NFPA
Annual Membership Meeting.

Step 5 Standards Council Issuance
* Notification of intent to file an appeal to the Standards Council on
Association action must be filed within 20 days of the NFPA Annual
Membership Meeting.
* Standards Council decides, based on all evidence, whether or not to
issue Document or to take other action, including hearing any appeals.
