Technical Committees

An NFPA Technical Committee (TC) serves as the principal consensus body responsible for the development and revision of an NFPA Standard or Standards emanating from a Technical Committee project. Appointment to a Technical Committee is based on: qualifications of the applicant; a balance of interest categories on the committee; maintaining the committee at a manageable working size; and the ability of the applicant to attend and participate in all committee meetings. A Technical Committee member does not need to be an active NFPA association member. E-mail NFPA with any questions about Technical Committees.

To apply for membership on an NFPA Technical Committee, select a document from our list of codes and standards, visit the “Technical Committee” tab to view the committee scope and responsibility, and select the link “Apply to Committee”. You will be asked to sign-in or create an NFPA account.
