The Maritime Safety Committee,

  1 The Maritime Safety Committee, at its seventy-fifth session (15 to 24 May 2002), with a view to ensuring uniform application of the fire test provisions of the FTP Code containing vague wording which is open to diverging interpretations, approved unified interpretations prepared by the Sub-Committee on Fire Protection at its forty-sixth session, as set out in the annex.

  2 Member Governments are invited to use the annexed unified interpretations as guidance, when applying relevant provisions of the FTP Code for the testing of new materials, tested on or after 24 May 2002, in order to fulfil the requirements of the 1974 SOLAS Convention, as amended, and to bring the unified interpretations to the attention of all parties concerned.

  3 Member Governments are also advised to take into account earlier unified interpretations to the FTP Code and fire test procedures referred to in the Code, as given in circulars MSC/Circular.964 and MSC/Circular.1004.
