Regionally, three fire and smoke design codes cover areas of the United States. The Building Officials and Code Administrators International (BOCA) primarily covers the Northeast. The Southern Building Code Congress International (SBCCI) is for Southern states. And the International Conference of Building Officials covers West Coast states. Probably in two years these three code agencies will become one, as pertains to their general present acceptance of "International Codes" which they are adapting.
These codes make reference to mainly three national groups providing fire protection and smoke management codes and standards. These are the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), Underwriters Laboratories (UL), and the American Society of Testing Materials (ASTM).
