The 2012 edition of NFPA 101: Life Safety Code® (LSC) is only 18 months old, and already the NFPA has issued changes to its new standard.

A Tentative Interim Amendment (or TIA as NFPA refers to them) is an amendment to one of the current or previous codes or standards, and if approved will automatically become a proposal for the next ­edition of the document. The process for a TIA to become ­accepted includes gaining approval from the ­appropriate ­technical committee, the correlating committee for that ­document, and finally approval from the Standards Council.

This brief was excerpted from the February issue of Healthcare Life Safety Compliance.
