A.1.3(1) For the purposes of this standard, a space is consid‐ ered as an entire building or a portion thereof separated from all other portions of the building by fre resistance–rated construction and whose environmental air does not mix with that of any other space. [For spaces not exceeding 708 m 3 (25,000 ft 3 ) in volume, see NFPA 90B.] Δ A.1.3(2) For construction types, see NFPA 220. Δ A.1.3(3) Such applicable standards include, but are not limi‐ ted to, NFPA 70 (see Ventilation in index) and NFPA 90B. Δ A.1.3(4) Such applicable standards include, but are not limi‐ ted to, NFPA 31, NFPA 33, NFPA 34, NFPA 45, NFPA 70 (see Ventilation in index), NFPA 75, NFPA 91, and NFPA 96. A.3.2.1 Approved. The National Fire Protection Association does not approve, inspect, or certify any installations, proce‐ dures, equipment, or materials; nor does it approve or evaluate testing laboratories. In determining the acceptability of installa‐ tions, procedures, equipment, or materials, the authority having jurisdiction may base acceptance on compliance with NFPA or other appropriate standards. In the absence of such standards, said authority may require evidence of proper instal‐ lation, procedure, or use. The authority having jurisdiction may also refer to the listings or labeling practices of an organi‐ zation that is concerned with product evaluations and is thus in a position to determine compliance with appropriate standards for the current production of listed items.
