Technical Meeting

NFPA is happy to announce the return of in-person debate and consideration of certified amending motions at the 2022 NFPA Technical Meeting (“Tech Session”) in Boston. Tech Session 2022 is planned to commence on Wednesday, June 8 at 1:00 p.m. with the presentation of Committee Service and Special Achievement Awards.  At the conclusion of awards recognition, presentation and debate of certified amending motions will begin.  In anticipation of increased participation and interest in cycling NFPA standards continuing, the 2022 event will consist of two days of debate and actions, concluding on Thursday, June 9. More details as to which certified amending motions will be debated and acted upon each day will be provided once the Motions Committee meets to finalize the agenda. 

Please note: In general, the NFPA Standards to be presented for action at the 2022 Tech Session are those with amending motions submitted to NFPA in advance of the meeting and certified by the Motions Committee of the Standards Council. Please check back periodically for updates and additional important information. The complete technical committee records (First Draft Report and Second Draft Report) documenting all revisions created during the revision cycle and relative materials are accessible on the Next Edition tab of the specific document’s information page (e.g. for NFPA 70, National Electrical Code®, for NFPA 54, National Fuel Gas Code, etc.) for your review at any time.  Anyone who has been a continuously active member of the association since December 10, 2021, and is registered for the 2022 Tech Session, will be eligible to vote on all CAMs.

Annual 2022 revision cycle

  • Technical Meeting Agenda - Order of Certified Amending Motions (CAMs) for presentation
  • Submitter Substantiations and Committee Statements:
  • May 2, 2022: Download this year's Report of the Motions Committee.  The Report of the Motions Committee addresses six Annual 2022 Standards and one Fall 2021 Standard with Certified Amending Motions for consideration at the 2022 NFPA Technical Meeting: NFPA 25, NFPA 70, NFPA 86, NFPA 130, NFPA 285, NFPA 502, and NFPA 855; and provides a list of NITMAMs that were not certified and a list of NITMAMs requested by the submitter to be withdrawn.
    • Withdrawal of CAMs 70-17 and 70-116:  Subsequent to the posting of the Motions Committee Report, two Certified Amending Motions for NFPA 70 (specifically, CAM 70-17 and CAM 70-116) were requested to be withdrawn by the submitters.  In accordance with the Regulations Governing the Development of NFPA Standards and the NFPA Technical Meeting Convention Rules, these CAMs were approved by the Motions Committee for withdrawal.

    • ATTENTION.  Special Notice:  Please be advised that a clerical error was identified in the Report of the Motions Committee and table of Certified Amending Motions which has now been corrected.  Specifically, the table of certified amending motions, effects page, and ballot mistakenly identified CAM 70-129 to involve §334.104 and the failed reballoting of First Revision number 8435, rather than accurately referencing §330.104 and failed reballoting of First Revision number 8420.  This has been corrected and  included in the Report available at the link provided.  Accuracy of the actions to be considered by the membership are of the utmost importance to NFPA and therefore we have reposted the corrected report in its entirety for your review to accurately reflect all actions available for pursuit at the Technical Meeting.
