Document Scope
This standard sets forth requirements for hazardproofing electrical installations and equipment in
hazardous locations classified by the authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) and other locations
designated as hazardous at Kennedy Space Center (KSC) to prevent ignition of flammable
liquids or hazardous fluids, gases, vapors or open-grain solid propellants.
This document defines the minimum requirement that KSC ground systems and equipment must meet.
This document does not
• define how to design systems and equipment, or
• encompass hazardproofing requirements associated with lightning protection, grounding, operational safety, toxicity, or chemical reactions.
This standard does not apply to locations made hazardous because of the presence of high explosives (such as blasting agents or munitions) or pyrophoric materials (those that ignite spontaneously in air).
