    NFPA 1600 was adopted by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as a voluntary consensus standard for emergency preparedness, and the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (the 9/11 Commission) recognized NFPA 1600 as our National Preparedness Standard. The 2013, 2007 and 2010 editions of NFPA 1600 have been designated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, to be used by accredited 3rd parties, to evaluate and certify compliance of entities under its Private Sector Preparedness (PS Prep) Program.
