As outlined in the MA Fire Code Update Insights Post, the Board of Fire Prevention Regulations approved a new edition of 527 1.00 CMR, the Massachusetts Comprehensive Fire Safety Code, which went into effect as of December 9, 2022.
As part of this adoption, code users are now referenced to the 2022 Edition of NFPA 241 when it comes to construction fire safety. This new edition includes a restructuring of the previously applicable 2013 Edition of NFPA 241 and brings in many new code requirements that may change the manner in which construction managers will price, schedule, and manage risk on their projects. Stay tuned for future Insights posts outlining specific impactful changes as to how buildings are built in Massachusetts.
