The NFPA Hazmat standards are up for review and revision.
The newly consolidated draft document, NFPA 470 (Formally NFPA 472 and 1072), Hazardous Materials Standard for Responders, is on the NFPA website for online submission of Public Input. The Public Input Closing date for this document is November 15, 2019.
THIS IS THE HAZMAT COMMUNITY’S TO VOICE YOUR OPINION ON THE FUTURE OF HAZMAT RESPONSE.
If you had previously entered Public Input(s) on one of the following documents: NFPA 472, NFPA 473 or NFPA 1072, NFPA is resubmitting all Public Input(s) to NFPA 470 on your behalf. You will receive an email notification once your Public Input(s) is submitted. You may then sign-in to review your Public Input(s).
In addition, the Public Input Closing date for NFPA 475, Recommended Practice for Organizing, Managing, and Sustaining a Hazardous Materials/Weapons of Mass Destruction Response Program, has been updated to align with the NFPA 470 closing date of November 15, 2019.
