IFC International Fire Code

The international fire code which is probably adopted across United States of America professionally forty-two states use this code as their primary fire code with various amendments and more detail requirements for specific sections.

You will also see the international fire code in use in US territories and government installations overseas and also in several countries around the world.

Your facility and equipment compliance with international fire code is critical such that the building and the equipment can be inspected. And then it turned on by your end user.

You’ll want to have complete confidence in your product meeting international fire code and providing appropriate installation instructions such that your equipment can be installed and approved.

Chapter 3          General Requirements    this section of the international fire code deals in general with requirements and also does have some very specific requirements for various areas.

Chapter 4          Emergency Planning and Preparedness. This section deals with all of the response systems programs, training, and how you and your company will respond to a fire.
