Building Codes

BOMA Participates on the NFPA Reconditioned Electrical Equipment Taskforce

BOMA International was invited by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) to have a voting seat on the Reconditioned Electrical Equipment Taskforce. NFPA requested our participation as BOMA is the only national association representing major building owners that provides members with a building and fire code presence in building-related codes and standards. The taskforce was formed by NFPA to focus on the reuse of existing electrical equipment; restoration of damaged equipment following floods, fires and other natural disasters; and for equipment that becomes outdated and reserviced in lieu of replacement. The taskforce is currently focusing on definitions that affect reconditioning to make sure they are separate from what is considered ordinary repair and maintenance. BOMA is also working to remove language that refers to individuals performing any work as being a third party. BOMA’s position is that the requirements should focus on qualifications and training, which wou ld allow building owners to perform the work with qualified in-house staff.

The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International is a federation of 88 BOMA U.S. associations and 18 international affiliates. Founded in 1907, BOMA represents the owners and managers of all commercial property types including nearly 10.5 billion square feet of U.S. office space that supports 1.7 million jobs and contributes $234.9 billion to the U.S. GDP. Its mission is to advance a vibrant commercial real estate industry through advocacy, influence and knowledge.​​
