The Staff Liaison reported on the following:
Scopes of Technical Correlating Committee and Technical Committees. Some revisions are necessary, due to the major revision of NFPA 30. The Technical Correlating Committee agreed to submit the proposed changes to the NFPA Standards Council at the end of this document revision cycle.
Membership Status. The Staff Liaison reported on recent changes to committee membership and on the balance of interests on the committees.
Document Revision Schedule for NFPA 30-2012. The Staff Liaison reviewed the upcoming deadlines in the revision schedule for NFPA 30-2012.
New Annex to NFPA 30 – Fire Hazards of Typical Fuels and Solvents. The Technical Correlating Committee reviewed a suggestion to add this proposed new annex and directed the Staff Liaison to inform the proponent to submit a formal proposal.
Deficiencies in NFPA 30 Related to Class IA Liquids. The Technical Correlating Committee reviewed a suggestion by George Seuss to address deficiencies in NFPA 30 as it applies to storage and handling of Class IA liquids. The Technical Correlating Committee determined that this is an issue for the NFPA 30 Technical Committees on Operations and on Storage and Warehousing of Containers and Portable Tanks. The proponent was asked to submit formal proposals to both Technical Committees.
Potential for Conflict between NFPA 30 and NFPA 400. It is the position of the Technical Correlating Committee that NFPA 400 should at most extract from NFPA 30 and not develop requirements of its own. The Technical Correlating Committee Chair agreed to pursue this with the chair of the NFPA 400 committee.
