The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has issued a new report designed to offer insights on the most effective use of carbon monoxide (CO) detection devices in facilities.

The NFPA Technical Committee on Carbon Monoxide Detection identified a gap in technical information with respect to the generation and movement of CO in buildings upon which to base spacing requirements for CO detectors in these occupancies. The new report presents a review of the international technical literature on death and injury incidence related to CO in both fire and non-fire contexts.

It also outlines previous research related to the dispersion of CO within buildings, the availability and applicability of models to predict dispersion, and spacing requirements in other codes and standards.
