RST is recognized by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) for fire test procedures according to FTP Code 2010 according to Fire test procedures code (FTP code)

The International Maritime Organization IMO has fire safety regulations for international merchant ships, called Fire Test Procedures (FTP Code).

This FTP Code contains requirements for laboratory testing, type approval and fire testing procedures of components and materials used on ships. The FTP Code uses fire tests developed by the International Standards Organization ISO covering non-combustibility, fire resistance, flammability, flame spread, smoke and toxicity of components and materials, as well as of specific products such as textiles, upholstered furniture and bedding.

The following table shows for which parts of the FTP Code 2010 the RST is recognized:
