Did you check the new rules?

21.11.2016 -
The entry into force of the D.P.R. 151/2011 "Regulation simplifying the regulation of proceedings relating to the prevention of fires, pursuant to Article 49, paragraph 4-quater, of the Decree-Law of 31 May 2010, no. 78, converted, with amendments, by the law of 30 July 2010, n. 122. (11G0193) "has renewed the list of activities subject to p.i., defining new criteria for analysis.

Includes activities are: "public and private garages, multi-plane and mechanized parking areas with a total covered area of more than 300 square meters; rooms used for the storage of boats and aircrafts with a surface of more than 500 square meters; deposits of vehicles (trains, trams, etc.) with a covered area of more than 1,000 square meters. "


The activities are divided into different categories: category A for garages up to 1000 square meters, category B for garages over 1000 square meters and up to 3000 square meters and shelter of boats and aircraft over 500 square meters and up to 1000 square meters and in category C garages over 3000 sqm, for the shelter of vessels and aircraft over 1000 square meters and deposits of vehicles. The old norm, at No. 92 of the D.M. 16/02/82, provided for the certificate of fire prevention for "private garages with more than 9 cars, public garages, boat shelters, aircraft shelter."
The new decree does not longer consider the number of cars but the surface of the garage in order to establish if an activity is subjected or not to passive fire regulation. For already existing garages, the following situations might occur:
1. Garage with an area of less than 300 square meters and with more than 9 vehicles is not subjected according to the new rule.
2. Garage with a surface greater than 300 square meters and with less than 9 vehicles is on the other hand subjected to the new rules and accordingly falls into category A. (c.f.r. D.P.R. 151/2011)

Administrators must identify if a building falls into the above mentioned catergories a, b or c, has to apply case studies and formulate the exact procedure to adapt regarding the rules deriving from the D.P.R. 151/2011. The control of the correct application of fire prevention measures in residential parking spaces is a duty of the building administrator, who is responsible for the activity subject to SCIA fire protection.
