2012 Edition of NFPA 101 Life Safety Code
CMS has adopted the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) 2012 edition of the Life Safety Code (LSC) as well as provisions of the NFPA’s 2012 edition of the Health Care Facilities Code. The 2012 LSC includes important changes from the 2000 edition of the LSC. The regulation effective date is July 5, 2016. CMS will begin surveying facilities for compliance with the 2012 codes on Nov. 1, 2016. If, however, a facility has a construction project and submits plans for review after July 5, 2016, the Minnesota Department of Health will conduct plan review and inspection to the new codes.
