National Fire Protection Association (NFPA): Request for Comments on NFPA's Codes and Standards, 66735-66737 [2010-27431]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 209 / Friday, October 29, 2010 / Notices Notice and request for comments. ACTION: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is soliciting public comment on a proposed revision to Voluntary Product Standard (PS) 2–04, Performance Standard for Wood-Based StructuralUse Panels. This revised standard, PS 2– 10, was prepared by the Standing Committee for PS 2 and establishes requirements, for those who choose to adhere to the standard, for the structural criteria to assess the acceptability of wood-based structural-use panels for construction sheathing and single-floor applications. It also provides a basis for common understanding among the producers, distributors, and the users of these products. Interested parties are invited to review the proposed standard and submit comments to NIST. DATES: Written comments regarding the proposed revision, should be submitted to the Standards Services Division, NIST, no later than November 29, 2010. ADDRESSES: An electronic copy (an Adobe Acrobat File) of the proposed standard, PS 2–10, can be obtained at the following Web site: http:// gsi.nist.gov/global/index.cfm/L1-5/l244/A-355. This site also includes an electronic copy of PS 2–04 (the existing standard) and a summary of significant changes. Written comments on the proposed revision should be submitted to David F. Alderman, Standards Services Division, NIST, 100 Bureau Drive, Stop 2150, Gaithersburg, MD 20899–2150. Electronic comments may be submitted to david.alderman@nist.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: David F. Alderman, Standards Services Division, National Institute of Standards and Technology, telephone (301) 975– 4019; fax: (301) 975–4715, e-mail: david.alderman@nist.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Proposed Voluntary Product Standard PS 2–10 establishes structural criteria for assessing the acceptability of woodbased structural-use panels for construction sheathing and single-floor application, and provides a basis for common understanding among the producers, distributors, and the users of these products. After conducting a review of the current standard, PS 2–04, the Standing Committee for PS 2 determined that updates were needed to reflect current industry practices, and developed this proposal through meetings to review the standard and propose needed changes. The proposed standard does not address nonstructural issues such as resistance to WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:23 Oct 28, 2010 Jkt 223001 biological agents. Applications for structural plywood other than construction sheathing and single-floor sheathing may require additional engineering considerations that are not covered by this document. The proposed revision of the standard has been developed and is being processed in accordance with Department of Commerce provisions in Title 15 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations, part 10, Procedures for the Development of Voluntary Product Standards, as amended (published June 20, 1986). The Standing Committee for PS 2 is responsible for maintaining, revising, and interpreting the standard, and is comprised of producers, distributors, users, and others with an interest in the standard. Committee members voted on the revision, which was approved unanimously. The Committee then submitted a report to NIST along with the voting results and the draft revised standard. NIST has determined that the revised standard should be issued for public comment. The revision includes the following changes: • Panel thickness: In order to resolve the inconsistency with NIST standards used by ‘‘weights and measures’’ regulators, PS 2 will require labeling with both a ‘‘Performance Category,’’ which is a fractional label such as 15/ 32, and a decimal thickness declaration, such as ‘‘THICKNESS 0.438 IN.’’ The Performance Category will maintain consistency with the panel thickness specifications required in the U.S. model codes. The Performance Category panel labeling will permit the abbreviations ‘‘PERF CAT,’’ ‘‘CAT’’ or ‘‘Category.’’ The decimal thickness declaration will help assure that panels are compliant with weights and measures regulations. • Two nonmandatory appendices were added to provide guidance on NIST Handbook 130 ‘‘Packaging and Labeling Regulations,’’ and to provide suggested thickness labeling. • Nonmandatory appendices on attributes related to Green Building and Formaldehyde were added. • A nonmandatory appendix on the history of PS 2 was added. • The moisture content specifications for the ‘‘dry,’’ ‘‘wet/redry’’ and ‘‘wet’’ test conditions were clarified in various sections of the standard. • The tables containing performance requirements were modified to provide clarity and references to the sections of the standard that provide the test methods and pass/fail criteria used during the qualification process. • The original fastener holding requirements for sheathing were based PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 66735 on thin plywood panels made with Group 4 species. Those panels are not representative of current sheathing panels. In addition, some U.S. model code requirements for wall sheathing were made more stringent, such that the existing nail holding requirements may not justify certain wind load conditions. Therefore, a test program to characterize the nail holding properties of current production was conducted by two testing agencies. Based on those test results, some requirements for nail holding performance of sheathing were increased. All public comments will be reviewed and considered. The Standing Committee for PS 2 and NIST will revise the standard accordingly. Dated: October 22, 2010. Harry S. Hertz, Director, Baldrige Performance Excellence Program.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Information: The Technology Innovation Program (TIP) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) was established for the purpose of assisting U.S. businesses and institutions of higher education or other organizations, such as national laboratories and nonprofit research institutions, to support, promote, and accelerate innovation in the United States through high-risk, high-reward research in areas of critical national need. The TIP statutory authority is Section 3012 of the America Creating Opportunities to Meaningfully Promote Excellence in Technology, Education, and Science (COMPETES) Act, Public Law 110–69 (August 9, 2007), codified at 15 U.S.C. 278n. The TIP implementing regulations are published at 15 CFR Part 296. TIP holds competitions for funding based on addressing areas of critical national need. TIP identifies and selects topics for areas of critical national need based on input from within NIST, the TIP Advisory Board, the science and technology communities, and from the public. TIP is interested in receiving input on the identification and definition of problems that are sufficiently large in magnitude that they have the potential to inhibit the growth and well-being of our nation today. This announcement explains the process for submitting comments on TIP white papers. Comments on white papers from experts in other Federal agencies are also valued and welcome, and will enable TIP to complement the efforts of other mission agencies and avoid duplication of their efforts, thereby leveraging resources to benefit the nation. The key concepts PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 enumerated below are the foundation of TIP and should assist all commenters in providing input that will help TIP develop and refine an effective white paper: a. An area of critical national need means an area that justifies government attention because the magnitude of the problem is large and the associated societal challenges that need to be overcome are not being addressed, but could be addressed through high-risk, high-reward research. b. A societal challenge is a problem or issue confronted by society that when not addressed could negatively affect the overall function and quality of life of the nation, and as such, justifies government attention. A societal challenge is associated with barriers preventing the successful development of solutions to the area of critical national need. TIP’s purpose is to provide funding that will enable U.S. businesses and institutions of higher education or other organizations, such as national laboratories and nonprofit research institutions, to tackle technical issues that can be addressed through high-risk, high-reward research. The results of the high-risk, high-reward research should have the potential for transformational results. c. A transformational result is a potential project outcome that enables disruptive changes over and above current methods and strategies. Transformational results have the potential to radically improve our understanding of systems and technologies, challenging the status quo of research approaches and applications. For an understanding of how these white papers were developed, and for detailed instructions on how to prepare and submit your own white papers to TIP, refer to A Guide for Preparing and E:\FR\FM\29OCN1.SGM 29OCN1
