All,

I am going through the painful process of obtaining an LEUP. It would appear that Florida has adopted NFPA 1127 - Code for High Power Rocketry. However, the NFPA web site charges $23.50 for a PDF copy of the code. As a cost saving measure, I was wondering if anyone might know where I could access a copy of this document. I can't seem to find it anywhere but the NFPA site.

I will cough up the money if I have to. . . :(

Thanks!!!

thanks for sharing these.

the ROP obviously means these files were the draft revisions recording the comments and changes from the review meetings. this additional information is very interesting.


I have major issues with the way NFPA 1122 & 1127 are handled. all the rocketry sanctioning bodies say NFPA is their by-law and you need to know what is in 1127 to really understand the questions for the level 2 HPR test.

however, 1127 is not freely available. you have to pay to get it.


try it this way: we have a law you must follow but we're not going to tell you what it is, how it was decided, or even who decided what goes in there!!

is that the antithesis of democracy or what?!??

I don't think it is the final copy but, it is very close. This is the May 2002 - ROP. I don't remember what ROP stood for. :(

I also have copies of NFPA 1122 and 1125 at that same location.
Thanks Mark!!! This will be helpful, and I hope we can locate the final version. If no-one has it, I might just buy it and share it.

I agree with cls: it is insane that this document is not freely available!!! :mad:

NFPA is a for profit entity. No one gets their codes for free (legally). They are not associated with the government. They have gotten most industrial insurers and fire marshalls to use them as the standard. The local authority having jurisdiction has the final say and can override them.

(EDIT)
Sorry, I mistyped. I believe NFPA is non-profit. However, they do not allow their codes to be distributed freely.

I suspect that any jusrisdiction who has adopted the codes will have copies available for review.

That's a good point Rstaff3. If Florida has adopted 1127 as part of their law, they may have a way to let you view the copy.

You also might try the engineering library at a nearby university.

Chris,

don't forget to check with your local and county officials as well. They may or may not have stricter regulations than NFPA 1127.

Kermie,

I have contacted the local fire marshall to confirm that they have indeed adopted NFPA 1127. That's what the state fire code (Chapter 69A-60 fire prevention code) says, but I want to hear it from someone with a title. I will probably ask for confirmation in writing.

As for Kazaa, you never know what wild and crazy documents might show up there! :)
