Requirement for NFPA 25 and log books on site.

Requirement for NFPA 25 and log books on site.

Requirement for NFPA 25 and log books on site.

There does not appear to be a requirement for the building owner to maintain a copy of NFPA 25 or a log book on site in the 2008 edition. I see where records are to be maintained and made available to the AHJ. Even as I look back to the 2002 and 1998 edition I don't see this requirement, yet somehow I notice that this has been carried forward over the years from somewhere. See attached AFSA cover page, items 5 and 6  for example.


RE: Requirement for NFPA 25 and log books on site.

I just received a call from NFPA and they state the obvious; that it would be somewhat of a conflict of interests to write the code and then determine that the code SHALL be maintained on site. This begs the question though - why did AFSA have it in their inspection reports where a "NO" is presumably a deficiency?


RE: Requirement for NFPA 25 and log books on site.

That is a great question lightecho.
I have being complaining about this for years because NFPA 25 does not require for a copy of the standard to be on site however NFPA 13 says that upon completion of the job a copy of NFPA 25 must be provided to the building owner.
In my opinion AFSA reports are the worst in the industry for multiple reasons.
Stick to NFSA reports and your inspectors will do much better in their inspections.
