"Innovation and Regulation: The Social Negotiation of Technical Change "
Author: Anthony, Michael A./ Vibbart, Jim
Published In: Facilities Manager
Date: March/April 2010

In this issue’s feature article by Rich Davis and John Saidi, we learn about how an industry wrote itself a revenue stream. A two-year effort begun by the University of Michigan Plant Operations, carried forward by APPA’s Code Advisory Task Force, and merged with other, like-minded organizations1, resulted in successful regulatory intervention in NFPA 252. Innovation and regulation are facets of the same overall process of technical change. It is important to understand them together as well as separately. Code Talkers column.
