CLASSIFICATION OF FIRE

Industries can be categorized in terms of hazard risk they handle, i.e. by the products either in terms of input materials or output materials they handle. The machineries involved in the manufacturing process are also critical as regard the potential hazard they inherit. In terms of hazard classification Tariff Advisory Committee has an exhaustive list.

For categorisation of occupancies not listed hereunder reference shall be made to be Regional Committee.
