Totally restructured, the 2008 NFPA 30 facilitates consistency and correlation with major construction and fire codes!

Adopted by most states and enforceable under OSHA, NFPA 30: Flammable and Combustible Liquids Code presents the latest and most complete guidance on the safe storage, handling, and use of these volatile substances. It provides the criteria you need to design facilities for better protection, comply with sprinkler requirements, and use safe operating practices.

Rewritten and reorganized, the new Code provides more focused and easier access to essential requirements.

The 2008 Code incorporates a new “HazMat” format that integrates with NFPA 5000®: Building Construction and Safety Code®, the International Building Code®, NFPA 1: Uniform Fire Code™, and the International Fire Code®, presenting NFPA 30 rules in a format consistent with these codes. The format will standardize the structure of all NFPA® hazardous materials documents. The result: greater consistency, less confusion, and better integration among pertinent codes that aids compliance.

Stay current on critical technical changes, including:

Adoption of the NFPA 101® occupancy definitions
Introduction of the concepts of control area, maximum allowable quantities, and protection levels
Additional fire protection design criteria for warehouse storage of containers, intermediate bulk containers, and portable tanks
Expanded requirement for overfill prevention measures to comply with EPA SPCC (Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasures) guidelines
Develop protection schemes based on the latest facts in the 2008 NFPA 30! (Softbound, 140 pp., 2008)
