Updated Approval Process for Structural Fire Protection

Thursday, August 23, 2007
Transport Canada, the Federal Government Department of Canada, now recognizes Type Approval Certificates for structural fire protection products on ships and offshore installations by Germanischer Lloyd. Transport Canada has updated its approval process. Type Approval Certificates released by Germanischer Lloyd are now accepted for installation in Canadian registered ships. Precondition: The approval criteria meet the International Fire Test Procedures Code (FTP Code), the latest regulations of the SOLAS Convention as amended and the Transport Canada Standard TP 14612.

Transport Canada has modified its approval process because efficient and effective fire protection plays a decisive role in the safe and secure transportation of people and goods. Ships still present the safest and most reliable means of transport for goods and persons worldwide.
