NATA Member Alert: Deadline for NFPA 407 Compliance Officially Extended

The NFPA Standards Council voted to approve Tentative Interim Amendment (TIA) 1610 earlier this month, officially granting a 24-month extension to the compliance deadline for section 5.1.12 of the 2022 revision of NFPA 407 Standard for Aircraft Fuel Servicing. Section 5.1.12 requires airport fueling vehicle loading racks to be equipped with automatic shutoff devices that are compatible with fueling vehicles. 

Please note, the new deadline, June 2, 2023, only applies to airports that adopted the 2022 revision of NFPA 407. The original compliance date of June 2, 2021, remains unchanged for airports operating under the 2017 revision. NATA has been in communication with the FAA’s Office of Airports as to how the extension will affect current enforcement policy at Part 139 certificated airports. We will update you as more details are received.
