Article-Over 15,000 NFPA Definitions for Free

The 2016 edition of the NFPA Glossary of Terms (GOT) has been published and is available online at no charge.

The GOT is a list of the defined terms in all of NFPA's published codes, standards, guides, and recommended practices. Over 15,000 terms are listed alphabetically and assembled into a free PDF available on the NFPA website. The document is used in a number of ways. It helps NFPA technical committees who are looking to define new terms or compare existing terms. It also helps members of the public who are interested in learning about how NFPA documents define specific terms.

The GOT contains the following details about each term:

Term: The word being defined

Definition: The description of the term

Document (Edition): Where the term and definition are found (document #) and the edition year of that document

Document Defining Same Term: A list of all documents that also define the same term

Document Using Same Definition: A list of all documents that also define the same term in the exact same way
