International Fire Safety Standard outlines common principles, best practices for global approach

The International Code Council recently helped develop and publish the International Fire Safety Standard (IFSS). This guideline outlines common principles and best practices designed to save lives by reducing risk and preventing devastating fires. The International Fire Safety Standard is an industry-led global response to addressing differing or, in some cases, non-existent requirements in countries across the world to fire safety. Code Council Chief Executive Officer Dominic Sims, CBO, said, “The International Codes, particularly the International Building Code and International Fire Code, offer a strong compliance pathway for jurisdictions looking to implement the IFSS Common Principles. Additionally, the training, certification, digital tools, product testing and evaluation, and accreditation services that comprise the growing Code Council Family of Solutions can aid jurisdictions in the hard work of effective code implementation and enforcement.” Read more here.
