    Performance-based fire codes and standards are documents that state goals for determining when performance is achieved. They include rules and procedures and usually involve testing and modeling.

    This unique new ASTM publication presents 12 peer-reviewed papers that give you an overview of performance-based initiatives in the United States and review the strategic options of ASTM’s Committee E-5 on Fire Standards in addressing those initiatives. It examines relevant concepts and activities, inside and outside of ASTM, and the possible role that ASTM might play in the move toward greater use of performance-based fire codes and standards in the United States and Canada.

    STP 1377 is meant to educate and motivate fire protection engineers, architects, fire chiefs, fire marshals, and building code officials on the new ways in which standards will be used and how they can become actively involved in the process.
