Building and fire codes with reference to installation standards provide prescriptive requirements for the classification of hazards and commodities as well as the associated design criteria.  It is not possible for the prescriptive standards to address every possible scenario in the built environment, therefore gaps exist that must be addressed.  

The design professional has the responsibility for determining hazard and commodity classifications in accordance with the process and guidance provided by the standards.  There are also many special occupancies identified that provide an associated design criteria.  When there are gaps in the standards we must identify methods to address them and provide proper sprinkler protection based on additional resources.
