New NAR Safety Codes Published Print
Written by Thomas

Effective August 1st, 2012 the NAR published new Model Rocket Safety and High Power Rocket Safety Codes. In the July, 2012 issue of The Electronic Rocketeer (#49), NAR President Trip Barber wrote "These updates reflect changes just made in June to the National Fire Protection Association codes 1122 and 1127 that provide the foundation for our hobby's legitimacy and safety to fire officials in communities throughout the USA."

I encourage our members to review the new rules. If you are interested, also see the 2011 NFPA committee proposals for NFPA 1122 and for NFPA 1127. According to Rocketry Planet, "In reviewing the final ballots results on the 29 proposals (1122|1127), only one of the 29 items received a negative vote—the change intended to address user-adjustable ejection charge delays. Every other proposal was voted for in the affirmative with only a handful voting affirmatively with a recorded comment." See the full article at Rocketry Planet.
