  Proposed Rule Changes

Office of the State Fire Marshal proposes rules to update Fire Protection Personnel Certification standards

Rules being proposed by OSFM will update the certification requirements in Subpart D of 41 Illinois Administrative Code Part 141 in order to meet National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards used by the Division of Personnel Standards & Education. Subpart D is changed to remove obsolete certification levels and add new certification levels. Revisions are also being made to the current certification levels for consistency and clarification. These proposed rules also establish electronic scheduling of approved courses, update the equivalency determination procedures for non-approved course completions, allow for the proctoring of State written exams by approved test facilities and proctors and eliminate the now obsolete bypass exam procedures. OSFM will be accepting comments during the 45 day public comment period from November 18, 2016 through January 3, 2017. Comments may be sent to:


Office of the State Fire Marshal, Division of Legal Counsel
Attn: Deborah J. Williams
1035 Stevenson Drive
Springfield, IL 62703
