The NFPA 70B committee has continued to meet every two weeks via conference and video calls. We are working on revamping chapters to make it into a standard, and while progress is sometimes slow, we appear to be on track for a First Draft for public comment sooner rather than later.
With the continued issue of COVID-19, our tentative in-person meeting scheduled for August 10–13, 2020, has been canceled. In fact, NFPA has canceled all in-person meetings for 2020. We remain hopeful to have an in-person meeting after the first of the year.
