Industry Affiliations

SFPE is proud to work with the following organizations that share in activities to further the mission and vision of the Society.

ABET, incorporated as the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc., is a non-governmental organization that accredits post-secondary education programs in applied and natural science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology.


The Automatic Fire Alarm Association (AFAA) is the only not-for-profit association exclusively focused on the fire alarm industry. Founded in 1953 in Chicago, Illinois, by a mixed group of contractors, engineers, and manufacturers.


Established in 1989 as a nonprofit, nonpartisan policy institute, CFSI is designed to educate members of Congress about the needs and challenges of our nation’s fire and emergency services to help them understand how the federal government can support the needs of their local first responders.


FEANI, as the largest European Federation of Engineers (1951) with membership in 34 countries, representing approximately 6 million individual engineers, established an Engineers Europe Advisory Group (EEAG), a cooperative consortium aimed at upgrading, promoting, and harmonizing the voice of engineers in Europe.


Fire in buildings is now bigger, more unpredictable, and more dangerous than ever before, and many of the current regulatory requirements around fire safety in buildings do not provide adequate fire protection for European citizens. Fire Safe Europe (FSEU) intends to change this status quo by working with experts, policy, and decision-makers to ensure that people and communities across Europe are safe from fire in every building they spend time in.


The International Code Council is the leading global source of model codes and standards and building safety solutions that include product evaluation, accreditation, technology, training, and certification. The Code Council's codes, standards, and solutions are used to ensure safe, affordable, and sustainable communities and buildings worldwide.


The International Fire Safety Standards (IFSS) Coalition is a group of professional and not-for-profit organizations responsible for researching, developing, publicizing, and implementing IFSS globally for the construction and real-estate sectors.


NSPE was established in 1934 to realize a simple but vital goal: create an inclusive, nontechnical organization dedicated to the interests of licensed professional engineers, regardless of the practice area, that would protect engineers (and the public) from unqualified practitioners, build public recognition for the profession, and stand against unethical practices and inadequate compensation.


NICET defines engineering technicians as the "hands-on" members of the engineering team who work under the direction of engineers, scientists, and technologists. They have knowledge of the components, operating characteristics, and limitations of engineering systems and processes particular to their area of specialization.


The National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing professional licensure for engineers and surveyors. NCEES develops, administers, and scores the examinations used for engineering and surveying licensure in the United States. It also facilitates professional mobility and promotes uniformity of the U.S. licensure processes through services for its member licensing boards and licensees.


The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is a global self-funded nonprofit organization established in 1896, devoted to eliminating death, injury, property, and economic loss due to fire, electrical and related hazards. NFPA delivers information and knowledge through more than 300 consensus codes and standards, research, training, education, outreach, and advocacy; and by partnering with others who share an interest in furthering their mission. Its mission is to help save lives and reduce loss with information, knowledge, and passion.


The Societies Consortium on Sexual Harassment in STEMM is a unique collective act of leadership and accountability to advance excellence in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medical fields (STEMM). This initiative is providing customizable model policies (with embedded menus of options for flexibility), policy-law guidance, and practical tools to advance professional and ethical conduct, climate, and culture in societies’ own operations and STEMM fields broadly, in support of the inclusion of all talent and excellence in the fields. Through a collective effort and investment, the consortium model can develop high-quality resources that benefit from multiple perspectives and national expertise in a time and cost-efficient manner.
