National Fire Protection Association
The NATIONAL FIRE PROTECTION ASSOCIATION (NFPA) is a United States trade association, albeit with some international members, that creates and maintains private, copyrighted standards and codes for usage and adoption by local governments. The association was formed in 1896 by a group of insurance firms. Its purpose was to standardize the then-new fire sprinkler systems. It reports to have 65,000 members. CODES AND STANDARDSThe association's codes and standards are published online. In 2013, the association, with others, filed suit against Public.Resource.Org for publishing the full texts of various codes. PRO claims that, since these codes form part of US or state law, they are not eligible for copyright. In 2017, the courts granted a motion for summary judgment filed by a number of standard development organizations (SDOs), including NFPA, ASTM International and ASHRAE

Insurance
INSURANCE is a means of protection from financial loss. It is a form of risk management primarily used to hedge against the risk of a contingent, uncertain loss. An entity which provides insurance is known as an insurer, insurance company, or insurance carrier. A person or entity who buys insurance is known as an insured or policyholder. The insurance transaction involves the insured assuming a guaranteed and known relatively small loss in the form of payment to the insurer in exchange for the insurer's promise to compensate the insured in the event of a covered loss. The loss may or may not be financial, but it must be reducible to financial terms, and must involve something in which the insured has an insurable interest established by ownership, possession, or preexisting relationship. The insured receives a contract , called the insurance policy , which details the conditions and circumstances under which the insured will be financially compensated
