Please read Resolucion 725 Julio 12 2006 published in Gaceta 25658. As was pointed out to several others, cultural differences do not permit defiance of any Code and Standard as adopted into Panamanian Law. I fight for my Firefighters who have to go in and risk their lives. I am a Fire Prorection Engineer . Before you put your hard earned money down on that luxury condo best advice is get an independent consultant with proper Certifications to provide a Fire Risk Assesment. NFPA Members do not certify anything, we write the Codes, we teach the Codes. When adopted by the Municipality then it becomes enforceable. Proper certifications would be Fire Officer 2

Member of Society of Fire Protection Engineers, recognized by National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies

When the above Resolucion 725 was adopted, most did not realize that every NFPA Code carries in every Chapter 2 as part of it just every other Code and Standard ever written by NFPA.. Stay safe
