This paper will review how the International Fire Code classifies hazardous materials, and how to determine if a High Hazard Occupancy structure is required for a particular process. Floor area and height restrictions will be discussed, along with the definitions of storage, open use and closed use as they relate to determine compliance with the Maximum Allowable Quantity. It will also review various strategies for meeting the requirements of the code without triggering the use of High Hazard Occupancy construction methods and restrictions.
