Deadline Approaching for Public Input on RV and Park Model RV Safety Standards

The annual revision cycle for the NFPA 1192 Standard on RVs and NFPA 1194 Standard for Recreational Parks and Campgrounds is now accepting public input for the 2025 revision cycle (2026 edition). The deadline for submitting code change proposals for these standards is June 1, 2023.

According to the News & Insights report of the RV Industry Association, the association’s Standards department actively participates in the national committee process for maintaining and updating RV and Park Model RV standards.

This commitment to continuous safety improvement includes reviewing and updating existing requirements every three to five years. These updates allow member manufacturers to take advantage of the latest technology and install advanced systems and components in their RV and Park Model RV product lines.

To ensure these updates reflect the industry’s and the public’s needs, the RV Industry Association calls for public input on the suggested code revisions. Members can submit a proposed revision through the online submission system, and the suggested changes will be presented in legislative text with strikethrough and underlines representing deleted and added text.

RV and Park Model RV owners, operators, and manufacturers have the opportunity to provide valuable feedback to the RV Industry Association to ensure the standards are up-to-date and reflect industry needs.

Private RV park and campground owners or operators, in particular, can benefit from providing input on the NFPA 1194 Standard for Recreational Parks and Campgrounds, as this standard provides guidance on various topics such as fire protection, emergency access, and sanitation.

“We encourage our members to participate in the public input phase,” said Bryan Ritchie, Vice President of the Standards department.

“The process of reviewing and updating our standards is essential for our department to continue improving RV safety guidelines, and public input is a significant part of that process. We welcome any thoughts and feedback on the standards’ suggested revisions, and we look forward to discussing this further.” Ritchie added.
