||Development of Regulations in the 1990 National Fire Code of Canada on Storage of Dangerous Goods
||Aug. 1990, Vol.26, No.3, p.266-280. 8 ref.
||This paper describes the process by which the Canadian National Fire Code was revised to address problems created when fires occur in buildings storing dangerous goods. Problems include the increased hazard to the surrounding community because of toxic smoke, runoff of contaminated fire-fighting water, and delays to normal fire-fighting operations. Key ideas that evolved as part of committee deliberations, such as the rationale for regulating products that were not previously considered to be a fire hazard, are described.
