Bill - there are 19 different CMPs (Code Making Panels) - what is the function of all these panels?

dana,

I don't have any in depth kowledge on this subject, perhaps someone else can fill in some info on that. But, generally speaking they are each responsible for reviewing and making decisions concerning specific Articles of the NEC.

If you look in the front of the NEC right after the Contents you will see the make-ups of each panel and the articles they were responsible for.

I will modify the list somewhat when I get a chance to include which articles are included where. I think that information is included on the first page(s) of each file too.

Bill

I see proposal 1-54 is the only one to deal with the AFCI.

In light of what? 100's of ROP's asking for clarification?

Do CMP's rent a dumpster for the event?

Sparky,
That is not the offical ROC. That will be published online within the next few weeks and mailed out in early July. There were many proposals on AFCIs that the panel acted on. You can read the actual proposals here . This is just the proposals without any panel comments and action. I think this is where the complete ROC will be published.

This is the same file that Mike Holt sent out notification about last night in his newsletter.

I didn't think he'd really want a lot of traffic on his server, so I copied it and broke it down into palatable chunks so it would be easier to get and view.

Code-Making Panel Chair proposal reports presented at NFPA┬┤s World Safety Conference & Expo, May 2003.

ROPs and ROCs

The NEC® Report on Proposals (ROP) and Report on Comments (ROC) play integral roles in the Code-making process. These reports are the main tools by which NFPA and the technical committees (also called code panels) communicate proposed Code changes to the electrical industry at large. Use the navigation on the left to explore the ROPs and ROCs section.

ROP Process

The NEC® Report on Proposals is developed over the three-month period following the public Call for Proposals. Anyone can submit proposals or address the committee regarding a proposal; NFPA membership is not required. In addition to public response, technical committees also develop their own proposals and incorporate them into the report. The technical committees vote on each issue and prepare the final Report on Proposals. The report is sent automatically to each proposer and affected committee member, as well as anyone else who requests a copy. Once the Report on Proposals is published, committee members vote to approve their report in the ROP by letter ballot. Two-thirds of the eligible committee members must approve in order for the process to continue to the next step.

ROC Process

After the NEC® Report on Proposals has received the necessary approvals, the next stage in the Code-development process begins. During a 90-day period, the public at large can submit comments on the proposals and committee actions. Once public comments are received, committee members convene again to review them and decide how to act. This is an open meeting allowing anyone to address the committee on a particular public comment. After a two-thirds approval vote by letter ballot, the committee publishes the Report on Comments, which details its reasons for revising or rejecting any public comments. Over the following seven weeks, the ROC is available to anyone for review.

Downloadable forms for making proposals and comments to the NEC® or any NFPA document:
