ASME A112.20.2-2004 pdf download.Qualification of Installers of Firestop Systems and Devices for Piping Systems.
1 GENERAL 1.1 Scope This Standard establishes minimum requirements, identified by industry consensus, for the training and qualification ofinstallers offirestop systems and devices for piping systems. The qualifications under this Standard are restricted to those that are required by this Standard, the model building and plumbing codes requirements for firestop- ping developed by NFPA, ICBO, SBCCI, BOCA, ICC, and IAPMO, and consensus standards for piping system penetrations of fire-resistance-rated walls, partitions, floors, floor/ceiling assemblies, roof/ceiling assemblies, or shaft enclosures. 1.2 Limitations for Firestop System Installer Compliance with this Standard in itself shall not qual- ify an individual as a certified firestop contractor in accordance with FM 4991 or a certified firestop inspector in accordance with ASTM E 2174. 1.3 Inspection of Firestop Systems Inspection of firestop systems shall be in compliance with ASTM E 2174. 1.4 References The following documents form a part of this Standard to the extent specified herein.
