UN-ECE’s adoption of the International Fire Safety Standard – Common Principles is a major step for building fire safety. The new standard was developed by the International Fire Safety Standards Coalition (https://ifss-coalition.org/) and covers legislation, codes or regulations and standards in all stages of a building’s life cycle (see pinfa Newsletter n°119). It aims to respond to increasing public concern over regulation and control of fire safety in buildings worldwide. The document will now be published as an UN ECE (Economic Commission for Europe) standard.
