The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is a global self-funded nonprofit organisation, established in 1896, devoted to eliminating death, injury, property and economic loss due to fire, electrical and related hazards. 

NFPA delivers information and knowledge through more than 300 consensus codes and standards, research, training, education, outreach and advocacy; and by partnering with others who share an interest in furthering our mission. Our mission is to help save lives and reduce loss with information, knowledge and passion. 

Codes and Standards 
NFPA is widely known as a codes and standards organisation – that’s the backbone of what we do, and it always will be. Our mission is to provide you with the information and knowledge you need to do your job well in today’s ever-changing environment. Our 300 codes and standards are designed to minimise the risk and effects of fire by establishing criteria for building, processing, design, service, and installation around the world. The more than 250 technical committees, comprised of approximately 9,000 volunteers, review public inputs and vote on the revisions in a process that is accredited by the American National Standards Institute. NFPA provides free online access to its codes and standards. 

NFPA training includes a variety of convenient ways to access codes and standards training and earn CEUs. Choose from classroom training, online training, on-site training, conferences and certification. 

Our seminars provide insight into the meaning, intent, and proper application of fire and electrical safety codes. NFPA administers professional certification programs including Certified Fire Protection Specialist, Certified Fire Inspector, and Certified Fire Plans Examiner. 

The annual NFPA Conference & Expo fosters the exchange of ideas among Association members. New and revised NFPA codes and standards are also discussed and voted upon at these meetings. NFPA develops dozens of texts, guides, and other materials that target firefighter and other first responder safety and health. 

NFPA membership is the easiest way to stay up-to-date. Membership helps you make the right decisions on the job by giving you the latest news and information, professional connections, and access to NFPA staff who can answer your technical standards questions. Members are invited to maximise their benefits by joining one or more of our 12 industry-specific Member Sections. Section membership is free and included with your NFPA membership.
