Fire Protection Engineers Seek Comments on Guide for Peer Review
The Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE) is accepting comments on the first draft of the revised Guide for Peer Review in the Fire Protection Design Process. The scope of the guide includes the initiation, scope, conduct and report of a peer review of fire protection engineering work product. Typically sought by a reviewing authority to provide a second opinion regarding the engineering work product’s likelihood of achieving stated objectives, peer review may also serve as a tool to assist stakeholders in making decisions regarding design suitability. NRMCA’s Shamim Rashid-Sumar is a member of SFPE and is providing comments to the revision of the Guide.
Build with Strength is a coalition led by NRMCA that promotes standards advocacy to leverage policies promoting safety and resiliency and help place more concrete. More information on the Guide is available and comments may be submitted here by Wednesday, February 26. For more information on fire codes and standards advocacy efforts, contact Shamim Rashid-Sumar at email@example.com.
