    The NFPA 3 Handbook in PDF helps you ensure commissioning is done correctly, in every building regardless of age or designated use. Based on the 2018 edition of NFPA 3 -- the Standard was originally developed in response to a request from the National Institute of Building Science (NIBS) -- this convenient electronic Handbook equips you with the complete Standard text along with commentary from industry experts.

    Keep commissioning projects on track with the latest mandatory rules plus explanations that help clarify complex provisions.

    Recent updates in NFPA 3 reflect the transition from recommendations to mandatory requirements. Many chapter requirements were reorganized and moved to other chapters to make the Standard more useable. The NFPA 3 Handbook makes navigation easy with instant searching and interactive functionality of both the Standard and the commentary.

    Only the NFPA 3 Handbook in PDF offers full access to:

    • Complete requirements of NFPA 3 governing the complete commissioning process for system operation throughout the building's life cycle. NFPA 3 is adaptable for all types of safety systems, from elevators to fire alarm systems to smoke control.
    • Requirements about identifying the commissioning team members, their qualifications, and their roles and responsibilities throughout the commissioning process.
    • Expert commentary explaining the hows and whys behind compliance and invaluable background information. You'll be better prepared to answer questions from clients, oversee workers, supervise vendors, and verify compliance.
    • Every annex in NFPA 3, including Annex C outlining responsibilities for members of the fire protection and life safety systems commissioning team and Annex E with sample commissioning documentation.
    • A table outlining technical revisions, so you can see at a glance what changes have occurred since the last edition.

    Make sure you know what's new and how it impacts your work with the NFPA 3 Handbook in PDF.

    Order this vital resource for designers, architects, contractors, engineers, and other stakeholders who need to understand how building systems work together to provide fire protection and life safety. (PDF, Approx. 135 pp., 2018)
