Proposed Fire Prevention and Safety Rule Amendments

Office of the State Fire Marshal (OSFM) proposes fire prevention and safety rule changes

OSFM is updating its rules necessary to protect the public from the dangers of fire, structural collapse, and insufficient means of egress in an emergency, by updating the referenced NFPA 101 Life Safety Code (2000 edition) to the 2015 edition, with certain modifications.  This rulemaking also eliminates provisions relating to permanently moored vessels which are simultaneously being moved to a new Part of OSFM rules.   

OSFM will be accepting comments during the 45 day public comment period, from Friday, January 4, 2019 through Tuesday, February 19, 2019.  Comments may be sent to:

​Proposed Permanently Moored Craft Fire Prevention and Safety Rules 

Office of the State Fire Marshal proposes permanently moored craft fire prevention and safety rule changes

OSFM is proposing new rules necessary to protect the public from the dangers of fire, structural collapse, and insufficient means of egress in an emergency occurring on a permanently moored craft (PMC). This proposed rulemaking creates a new Part to address safety for permanently moored craft formerly referred to in OSFM rules as permanently moored vessels (PMVs). The rules were formerly contained within 41 Ill. Adm. Code 100.7(b)(5). The rulemaking also updates referenced standards that were identified in previous rules. 

OSFM will be accepting comments during the 45 day public comment period, from Friday, January 4, 2019 through Tuesday, February 19, 2019.  Comments may be sent to:
