  10. date of issue and possible number of the type approval certificate;

  11. expiration date of the certificate;

  12. name of the issuing body (competent authority) and, if applicable, authorization;

  13. type approval certificates for windows shall state which side of the window was exposed to the heating condition during the test;

  14. the certificate shall include a reference to optional test(s) such as hose stream test and/or thermo radiation test; and

  15. information required in subparagraphs .2 to .5 may be specified in a manual/booklet of the product which shall be clearly referred to in the certificate.

5.2.5 In general, the type approved products may be installed for their intended use on board ships flying the flag of the approving Administration.

7 - Use of equivalents and modern tehnology

7.1 To allow modern technology and development of products, the Administration may approve products to be installed on board ships based on tests and verifications not specifically mentioned in this Code but considered by the Administration to be equivalent with the applicable fire safety requirements of the Convention.

7.2 The Administration shall inform the Organization of approvals referenced in paragraph 7.1 in accordance with regulation I/5 of the Convention and follow the documentation procedures as outlined below:

  1. in the case of new and unconventional products, a written analysis as to why the existing test method(s) cannot be used to test this specific product;

  2. a written analysis showing how the proposed alternative test procedure will prove performance as required by the Convention; and

  3. a written analysis comparing the proposed alternative test procedure to the required procedure in the Code.

8.2 The Administration may issue type approval certificates of products tested in accordance with the previous version of this Code1, provided the tests were conducted no later than one year after entry into force of this Code. The purpose is to allow test laboratories a practical period of grace to obtain test equipment necessary to comply with this Code. Tests conducted later than one year after entry into force of this Code shall be conducted in accordance with the present version.

8.3 The Administration may renew a type approval of a product tested in accordance with the previous version of this Code* without re-testing, provided that the test report is not more than 15 years old and that no alteration of components or construction has been made to the product.

Table 1 – Materials used on passenger ships for bulkheads of accommodation spaces as defined in regulation II-2/3.1 and its requirements (regulations 5.3 and 6.2)

Notes:
* Exposed surfaces of corridors and stairway enclosures referred to in regulation II-2/5.3.2.4.1.1 include floor coverings.
** Where the wall panel is an integral part of the fire insulation in accordance with regulation II-2/9.2.2.3.3, these components are to be of non-combustible material.

 

 

Table 2 – Regulations 5.3 and 6.2 – Materials used in accommodation spaces, as defined in regulation II-2/3.1, of cargo ships (method IC)

(1) Vapour barriers used on pipes for cold services (see interpretation to regulation II-2/5.3.1.1) may be of combustible materials providing that their surface has low flame spreasd characteristics (Reg. II-2/5.3.1.1
(2) Applicable to paints, varnishes and other finishes (Reg. II-2/6.2
(3) Only in corridors and stairway enclosures

(2) Where the materials is fitted on non combustible bulkheads, ceiling and lining in accommodation and service spaces (Reg. II-2/5.3.2.2)
(3) To be applied to those accommodation and service spaces bounded by non combustible bulkheads, ceiling and linings (Reg. II-2/5.3.2.3.1)
(4) Only in corridors and stairway enclosures serving accommodation and service spaces and control stations (Reg. II-2/5.3.1.2.2.2)
(5) Applicable to paints, varnishes and other finishes (Reg.II2/6.2)
(6) Only in corridors and stairway enclosures
