The NFPA 70B committee continues to update the existing guide to a standard. They meet every other Friday for a two-hour conference call to make progress on various chapters. The chapter numbers have changed to improve the flow of the document and make it easier to follow.
The progress has been a bit slow, and now that issue has been worsened by COVID-19. The meeting originally scheduled for late March has been rescheduled for mid-August. The conference calls every other Friday resume on April 17. At this time, a definitive publication date has not been set.
