The International Maritime Organization (IMO) adopted the
International Code for the Application of Fire Test Procedures, 2010
(2010 FTP Code) and amendments to SOLAS regulation II-2/3.23
The amended Code which has been adopted through MSC.307(88) on December 3rd, 2010 includes the following changes:
All relevant resolutions and circulars on fire test procedures have been added in the Code.
Part 5 regarding the test for surface flammability (test for surface materials and primary deck covering) has been re-written to include previous Part 6 and Resolutions A.653(16) & A.687(17). As a consequence Part 6 is intentionally left blank to maintain numbering of the previous Code.
