NWPCA FIRE CODE Compliance Manual
Complete below to access your complimentary copy of the NWPCA Fire Code Compliance Manual for Outdoor Storage of Wooden Pallets.
About the Manual: The 2018 Editions of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA 1) and the International Code Council (International Fire Code) contain revised requirements for the storage of wood and composite wood pallets at manufacturing and recycling facilities. NWPCA was actively involved in the development of the revised requirements and was influential in ensuring that one of the underlying principles of the revised requirements is to address the fire risk with sound operating practices. The new requirements refer to the need for a defined site plan, a fire prevention plan, a fire safety and evacuation plan, and a security management plan.
The NWPCA compliance manual provides the necessary information facilities need to achieve compliance with the revised requirements. The document also includes templates and checklists that facilities can use to facilitate drafting the required plans and maintaining the needed documentation. While these revised requirements may not yet be in effect in your jurisdiction, the document will help you prepare for the pending changes. In addition, the sound operating procedures will benefit any facility by helping them manage their fire risk.
After you complete and submit the form, a page will take you to two sections of the manual available for download.
