Original title Comentarios y reflexiones acerca del nuevo Reglamento de seguridad contra incendios en los establecimientos industriales [in Spanish]
Bibliographic information 4th Quarter 2001, Vol.21, No.84, p.9-17. Illus.
Abstract This article analyses in detail the contents of the new Spanish regulation on fire safety at industrial sites approved by the Royal Decree 786/2001 (see CIS 02-21). This regulation has been developed in a "horizontal" manner so as to define the conditions for fire safety in all Spanish enterprises, including SMEs, which were until now not subject to any regulations.
