Comments must be received by VA on or before September 15, 2014.
38 CFR Parts 17, 51, 52 and 59
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) proposes to amend its regulations incorporating by reference the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) codes and standards. These codes and standards are referenced in VA regulations concerning community residential care facilities, contract facilities for certain outpatient and residential services, Medical Foster Homes, and State home facilities. To ensure the continued safety of veterans in these facilities, VA would continue to rely upon NFPA codes and standards for VA approval of such facilities. This proposed rulemaking would update our regulations to adhere to more recent NFPA codes and standards.
