New Requirements NFPA 101 Are you taking advantage of the new criteria?
Vice President, Jensen Hughes
CMS, The Joint Commission, DNV and other deemed status organizations are using a newer edition of NFPA 101. In 2016 CMS adopted new rules and new Life Safety requirements. In many cases the requirements have been reduced, clarified or removed. This presentation will summarize the major updates that have design impact. New criteria for rehabilitation projects will require actions for all construction projects in existing facilities. Opportunities to reduce requirements and allow new design solutions will be discussed.
1. Summarize the adoption process and the adopted Codes

3. Describe the new criteria for Rehabilitation Projects. Chapter 43 criteria describes the upgrades required for construction rehabilitation projects.
