Please be aware that New Jersey has adopted the 2018 International Building Code effective September 3, 2019. There is a 6 month period where either the 2015 or 2018 edition is permitted to be used. The update to the building code triggers updates to the NFPA Standards that we follow, see reference below for most commonly used standards.
NFPA 10 Fire Extinguishers 2018 Edition
NFPA13, 13D, 13R Fire Sprinklers Installations 2016 Editions
NFPA 20 Fire Pumps 2016 Edition
NFPA 70 Electric Code 2017 Edition
NFPA 72 Fire Alarms 2016 Edition
Currently, the New Jersey Uniform Fire Code is still based on the 2015 International Fire Code and the referenced NFPA Standards’ Editions.
