SESHA 2005 Symposium - Abstract

Fire and Building Codes: One Code or Conflicting Codes?

Hynes, George

This slide presentation discusses the Fire and Building Codes. Several topics are covered. The interplay of the two major model code groups involved, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the International Code Council (ICC) are discussed. Which model codes are required by law is discussed, with examples of a few states’ requirements. The need for one code set is emphasized. An overview of the latest editions of both the ICC Building Code and Fire Code is presented, with examples relevant to semiconductor facilities and operations. An analysis of current trends is also presented.
