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 or Panel meets to act on Proposals, to develop its own 
   Proposals, and to prepare its Report.
 - Committee votes by written ballot to approve its actions on the 
   Proposals. If approval is not obtained, the Report returns to 
   Committee.
 - If approved, the Report on Proposals (ROP) is published for public 
   review and comment.

Step 3 Report on Comments (ROC)
 - Committee or Panel meets to act on Public Comments, to develop its 
   own Comments, and to prepare its report.
 - Committee votes by written ballot to approve its actions on the 
   Comments. If approval is not obtained, the Report returns to 
   Committee.
 - If approved, the 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 Association 
   Technical Meeting. ("Consent Documents" bypass the Association 
   Technical Meeting and proceed directly to the Standards Council for 
   issuance.)
 - NFPA membership meets each June at the Association Technical 
   Meeting and acts on Technical Committee Reports (ROP and ROC) for 
   Documents with "certified amending motions."
 - Technical Committee(s) and Panel(s) vote on any amendments to the 
   Technical Committee Reports made by the NFPA membership at the 
   Association Technical 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 
   Association Technical Meeting.
 - Standards Council decides, based on all evidence, whether or not to 
   issue the Document or to take other action.
