Flammability of Marine Carpet Technical Bulletin
Updated Technical Bulletins from the Carpet and Rug Institute - Flammability of Marine Carpet
Did you know that the Carpet and Rug Institute has a wholelibrary of technical bulletins on its website?

That’s right - CRI has an entire section oftechnical bulletins, white papers and scientific research available for anyone with the time (and patience) to access. 

Eleven of these important technical documents have been updated in 2012. (See Carpet and Rug Institute Updates 11 Technical Bulletins.) Additional bulletins are scheduled for review and updating in 2013.
This week, we feature excerpts from the Flammability of Marine Carpet Technical Bulletin.
Flammability of Marine Carpet Technical Bulletin (09/12)
The regulations and rules for carpet aboard vessels for domestic and international waters are enforced by the U. S. Coast Guard. The rules for domestic waters for vessels such as casinos and houseboats are contained in Title 46, Subchapter Q, Part 164, of the Code of Federal Regulations.   Regulations for carpet aboard U.S Flagged Ships such as cruise ships, navy vessels, cargo ships and tankers are contained in the International Code for the Application of Fire Procedures (FTP Code)

Ships going into international waters must comply with the provisions of the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Treaty. The U.S Coast Guard is an approved signatory for the Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA) for the SOLAS Convention.
