On-line Codes & Standards

Post by Greg »

HB found a list of on-line codes and standards documents at the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) site. The link below will take you to the listing of on-line documents.

All NFPA Codes and Standards

About the NFPA
The authority on fire, electrical, and building safety.

The mission of the international nonprofit NFPA is to reduce the worldwide burden of fire and other hazards on the quality of life by providing and advocating consensus codes and standards, research, training, and education. NFPA membership totals more than 81,000 individuals from around the world and more than 80 national trade and professional organizations.

Established in 1896, NFPA serves as the world's leading advocate of fire prevention and is an authoritative source on public safety. In fact, NFPA's 300 codes and standards influence every building, process, service, design, and installation in the United States, as well as many of those used in other countries. NFPA's focus on true consensus has helped the association's code-development process earn accreditation from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

As far as other codes, such as building codes and electrical codes, anyone find anything on line? The majority of building code organizations, while promoting themselves as being there for the safety of everyone, in my experience are very much in the business of selling code books.
