2000 Codes Affecting Hazardous Gas Monitoring
Logan T. White, P.E. (Logan T. White Engineering)
In the year 2000, the International Fire Code was published as the culmination of an effort to develop a model code acceptable to jurisdictions throughout the United States. During the code development process, some organizations dropped out of the International Fire Code and published a 2000 edition of the Uniform Fire Code. This paper will review 2000 IFC and UFC code requirements affecting hazardous gas monitoring. Both codes reference nationally-recognized standards and call for gas detection and alarm systems to be listed or approved. This paper will outline standards that address these issues.
