NFPA 1981 & 1982 Update Summary
The NFPA (National Fire Protection Association), with the help of manufacturers and users alike, works to provide standards aimed at increasing the protection and safety of the men and women who serve this nation as our first responders. We at MSA work diligently in the quest for that very same thing.
Since 1986 the NFPA has released updates to these standards every five years, intended to minimize the potential and dangers of fire and other risks. This site is intended to provide detail on the latest developments in the 2018 update to the 1981 and 1982 standards which are scheduled to be published in November of 2017.
