NFPA Announces New Entity, NFPA Global Solutions, to Advance Safety

NFPA Global SolutionsThe National Fire Protection Association® (NFPA®), a global self-funded nonprofit organization devoted to eliminating death, injury, property, and economic loss due to fire, electrical, and related hazards, has announced the establishment of NFPA Global Solutions™. In support of the NFPA mission, NFPA Global Solutions is a fully-owned NFPA corporation that will offer compliance solutions, digital products, and advisory services that extend beyond the traditional products and services offered by NFPA. NFPA also announced a new business line within NFPA Global Solutions called NFPA Global Advisors™. NFPA Global Advisors will help governments and companies around the world improve safety through the implementation of the NFPA Fire & Life Safety Ecosystem. While NFPA codes and standards are used and applied globally today, this entity will help expand that system of safety in each area outlined in the ecosystem cogs.

This expansion under NFPA President and CEO Jim Pauley’s leadership is part of an ambitious plan to further the NFPA mission via acquisitions and new offerings to serve the broader safety needs across the globe to tackle persistent and emerging challenges.

NFPA Global Solutions will be led by Carlos Correia, formerly NFPA Vice President of Strategic Initiatives. As President of NFPA Global Solutions, Correia will oversee the entity’s growth, including acquisitions, innovation, and scaling within related sectors. Additionally, Keith Williams, former CEO of UL, and Michael Wallace, former Executive Director of Business Development for Carrier Corporation, have been appointed as independent board members.

“The nature and intensity of safety risks continue to evolve,” said Pauley. “NFPA Global Solutions and NFPA Global Advisors allow us to further advance the NFPA mission and support our customers and stakeholders to enhance fire, life, and electrical safety, in alignment with the NFPA Fire & Life Safety Ecosystem, a framework that identifies the components that must work together to minimize risk and help prevent loss.”

NFPA Global Solutions is dedicated to aiding companies in demonstrating compliance to standards and regulations, helping promote innovation, safety, and acceptance in the marketplace. NFPA Global Solutions will introduce digital products to assist NFPA customers and stakeholders in mitigating risks, enhancing safety, and creating operational efficiency.

NFPA Global Advisors offers services to help governments and companies establish and/or improve their systems of safety. NFPA Global Advisors will work with those entities to create action plans around each cog of the NFPA Fire & Life Safety Ecosystem, with the overall objective of increasing safety for people and property.
