Committees at NFRC regularly meet to assure that programs and policies are in place to meet the NFRC mission.

The majority of work done by NFRC members takes place in its Committee Structure through Task Groups, Subcommittees and Committees. NFRC develops its standards and program documents in accordance with consensus procedures; with input accepted from all interested parties; and negatives and comments formally addressed and resolved. A simplified outline of the levels of the Committee Structure can be found here.

NFRC committee meetings are typical held twice a year; Subcommittee and Task Group meetings may be held four times a year (or more).
