Fire Resistant Container - Design, Performance and Testing Requirements

Standard:
Scope:

This Standard specifies the minimum design and performance criteria and testing methods of passive fire resistant containers ( FRCs ) for carriage on aircraft main deck, to be used: (a) either in those cargo compartments of civil transport aircraft where they constitute one means of complying with applicable airworthiness regulations, (b) or on a voluntary basis, when deemed appropriate by operators to improve fire protection in aircraft cargo compartments where airworthiness regulations do not currently mandate their use.

Rationale:

This standard is being developed to satisfy, in part, NTSB Safety Recommendation A-12-69 which addresses improved air cargo container materials flammability properties and the industry desire to create an air cargo container that can contain a fire for a period of time. The fire protection afforded by this container will provide an increase in flight crew safety compared to existing cargo container designs.
