OSFM Proposed Amendments to Administrative Rules

January 7, 2019 04:50 PM

Good Afternoon Illinois Fire Services Association Members,

The OSFM has proposed amendments to our administrative rules that update our adopted code from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 101, Life Safety Code (2000 edition) to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 101, Life Safety Code (2015 edition), with additional modifications.

Our proposed rules were published in the Illinois Register on Friday. There are links on our website ( to the text of proposed rules as well as fact sheets that relate to the proposed rules changes that we encourage everyone to review. We would especially direct you to the fact sheets What is the Life Safety Code? And Why is the OSFM updating the Life Safety Code? and Where Does the Life Safety Code Apply? to get a better sense of the impact that this change may have on your community or organization.

If you have a specific comment or question on the rulemaking that you wish to make, you may send that to:

Office of the State Fire Marshal

Attn: Cathy Stashak

100 W. Randolph St., Suite 4-600

Chicago, IL  60601

Or by facsimile, Attn: Cathy Stashak to 312.814.3459.

Please review the information at the website prior to sending in questions or comments, as the available fact sheets should answer the most frequently posed questions.
