In April 2019, the NFPA appointed a technical committee to develop a new Standard on Remote Inspections. Since August 2019, the committee has held several development meetings to turn the scope approved by the NFPA Standards Council into a document ready for public review.
This presentation will describe the scope of the proposed standard and present the outline as it currently exists. Remote inspection methodologies, the types of systems and components proposed to be used, file formats, record collection, and record retention will all be discussed.
While the use of remote inspections was initially not considered for water-based and other active fire protection systems, several committee members are in favor of including them in the standard.
