Fire Codes 2005 - A review of the Fire Codes and Standards applicable to the Semiconductor industry today. 1. The International Fire Code (IFC) today and changes proposed by the SIA-FABS group. 2. The NFPA 318 Standard for the Protection of Semiconductor Fabrication Facilities and the proposed changes for the 2005 edition. 3. A brief look at existing SEMI Standards and the ones being currently revised. 4. Where are we headed? The drive toward more performance based rather than prescriptive requirements, the widening use of Alternate Materials and Methods solutions to problems and the preference of proactive rather than reactive ways to process safety.
