Report On Comments


The Report on Comments (ROC) meeting of the NFPA 70E committee is always interesting and always has some surprises. This one was conducted in Savannah, Georgia and was no different. The ROC meeting actually ran seven full days due to several task groups meeting on Saturday and Sunday. The task group meetings lasted nine and eight hours, respectively. Task groups are formed to smooth the process and present recommendations to the full committee in order to reach consensus (hopefully) more quickly. Each proposal still has to be discussed by the full committee, but if the task group is large enough, it usually speeds things up.
