Description / Abstract:

This standard sets the requirements for Approval of Firestopping Contractors who install firestop systems and their components that are listed by an accredited third party testing or listing agency as fire rated construction of specific hourly ratings.

This standard examines the contractor's training and education of its workforce, general knowledge of firestop systems and their components, handling, design selection, installation and application procedures to ensure a practical and reliable installation.

This standard, in part, assesses the ability of a Designated Responsible Individual (DRI) to interpret and understand the information contained in the FCIA's Manual of Practice and FM Approval requirements as evidenced by satisfying the minimum requirements of written examinations. A contractor who meets this and all other requirements of this standard shall be listed in the Approval Guide, an online publication of FM Approvals, as an Approved Firestop Contractor.

Purpose

The purpose of this standard is to improve the performance and installation of firestop systems and their components by examining and qualifying contractors involved in the installation of such systems and components.

This standard shall be used to assess the ability of responsible individuals designated by firms that install firestop systems and their components to understand the requirements and restrictions/limitations of the Firestop Contractors International Association's (FCIA) Manual of Practice and FM Approval requirements.
