In the ever-evolving building and construction industry, it's critical to keep pace with the latest requirements for minimizing injuries and safeguarding life, health, property, and public welfare. NFPA 5000, Building Construction and Safety Code®, offers provisions for regulating and controlling the permitting, design, construction, quality of materials, and use, occupancy, and location of buildings, structures, and specific equipment.
Created to fill the gap in the code regime for a building code developed using American National Standards Institute procedures, NFPA 5000 is a vital resource for architects, engineers, authorities having jurisdiction, contractors, building owners and developers, multinational companies, and anyone with responsibilities for safety in the built environment. The code addresses natural and human-made dangers such as fire, flood, earthquake, wind, and related natural hazards and environmental concerns.

The 2021 edition features updates based on emerging trends and safety concerns, such as security, new building materials, and exterior wall testing.
