Is there a process for appealing interpretations of the Fire Prevention Bureau?

The process for appeal is located within the administrative section of the 2012 International Fire Code. An appeal board will hear requests for determinations on interpretations or alternate materials or processes that meet the intent of the code. There is no process for eliminating the enforcement of any specific section within the code as adopted. The code is considered to be the minimum required to produce a safe built environment for our citizens.
