El Ministerio de Industria, Comercio y Turismo ha publicado recientemente una nueva versión de la Guía Técnica de aplicación del Reglamento de Seguridad Contra Incendios en los Establecimientos Industriales (RSCIEI; Royal Decree 2267/2004).
Among the notable changes, we can see that the Guide includes links to the new regulation in force, such as Royal Decree 513/2017, or the amendment of Appendix A, reminding that Directive 89/106/EEC has been replaced by the EU Regulation 305/2011 on construction products. It also specifies particular aspects relating to independent fire sectors, types of industrial warehouses, type D and E establishments, skylights or maximum distances for escape routes.
This new version of the Guide also includes new references supporting regulatory compliance; particularly noteworthy is the inclusion of fire safety engineering standards UNE-ISO 23932:2017 (actualmente en revisión para adoptar la norma ISO 23932:2018) y UNE-ISO 16733-1:2017, which provide guidelines to approach the performance-based design and the UNE-ISO 16730-1:2017 Standard, to which computer software programs for simulating and validating this type of solutions must conform and which, exceptionally and in order to guarantee equivalent safety requirements, use the design tools as an alternative to the prescriptive approach.
It also mentions the use of the UNE 192005:2014 Standard by the supervisory bodies to conduct inspections as established by Royal Decree 2267/2004.
These references are available in the UNE catalogue within the area of work of the CTN 23 on Fire prevention, and CTN 192/SC 5 on Regulatory inspection of fire prevention installations, the Secretariat of which is TECNIFUEGO as a member of UNE.
