NFPA is accepting public input until July 8, 2013 for the next revision of NFPA 820 document.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) develops, publishes and disseminates more than 300 consensus codes and standards intended to minimize the effects of fire and other risks. NFPA 820 Standard for Fire Protection in Wastewater Treatment and Collection Facilities originated in 1983. This standard establishes minimum requirements for protection against fire and explosion hazards in wastewater treatment plants and associated collection systems, including the hazard classifications of specific areas and processes. NFPA standards are generally revised every 3-5 years. The revision takes place over a two year period with a balance of committee members from various interest groups such as document users, enforcers, manufacturers, insurers and special experts. The NFPA is seeing public input on the next revision of NFPA 820 and is also seeking new committee members. All NFPA documents are available for viewing free of charge when you set up a free on line account by providing your email address and setting up a password. The NFPA 820 document can be viewed at www.nfpa.org/820. There are several tabs that are located on the page. The first tab “Document Information” provides the scope of the document as well as the latest read-only version of the standard. The tab, “Next Edition” is where you can submit public input on line. If you feel there are changes or clarifications that should be made to the document, you can go directly to that section of the document and make the suggested changes and then substantiate the reason for this recommended change. The technical committee must consider each public input received in their first draft meeting. NFPA is accepting public input until July 8, 2013 for the next revision of the document. If you are interested in applying to be on the technical committee you can open the “Technical Committee” tab to apply on line. Nancy Pearce is the NFPA Staff Liaison for NFPA 820.
