This document establishes requirements for reciprocating internal combustion engines to minimize the risk of fire caused by the engine, its components and the auxiliaries fitted to it. Where necessary, special requirements can be given for particular engine applications.
This document applies to reciprocating internal combustion engines for land and marine use, excluding engines used in an explosive atmosphere, road vehicles and aircraft.
This document can also apply to engines used to propel small craft and for other applications where no suitable International Standard for fire protection on reciprocating internal combustion engines exists.
For engine applications excluded above, this document can be used as the basis for engine application standards.
