Governance Documents

The SFPE Foundation abides by the following governance documents.

SFPE Foundation Bylaws

The Bylaws outline the Foundation's structure and composition at the highest level.


Policies & Procedures

The SFPE Foundation Policy and Procedures provide the most details about the foundation's structure and operations.

As the SFPE Foundation is a subsidiary of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE), in cases where the SFPE Foundation does not have an explicit independent policy in place, SFPE policies apply. This is true, for example, with respect to our Non-Discrimination Policy, Anti-Harassment Policy, and Limited English Proficiency Policy and Procedure. Please refer to the SFPE Standing Rules document (last amended on December 2, 2021), for additional details.
