    The complete regulatory process involves the application and enforcement of building and fire codes. Building codes govern new construction and embody standards designed to protect occupants and property from the hazards of fire. Fire codes are intended to preserve fire safety features of building codes and to govern fire safety practices involving the processes and uses within buildings. These codes must be compatible. Additional research is needed to address some of the newer fire problems now confronting regulatory officials.
