||New installation rule (Sept. 1994) for portable extinguishers in France. This rule was harmonized with the new version of art. R232-12-17 of the French Labour Code, which requires the installation of at least one 6L (or 6Kg) portable extinguisher per 200m2 of floor surface. The computation method for the number of extinguishers has been modified accordingly. In addition, fire protection requirements for particular activities are specified (storage of flammable liquids, high storage, cold rooms, etc.). This rule came into force on 1 Dec. 1994.
