In the Code of Federal Regulations Volume 79, Number 203 formally published on October 21 2014, the United States Environmental Protection Agency officially recognized Stat-X agent for use as a total flooding agent for the protection of occupied and unoccupied areas.
The US EPA has approved Stat-X as the very first condensed aerosol fire suppression system agent (listed as Powdered Aerosol D) as suitable for use as a total flooding system for occupied and unoccupied areas. This is an update to the US EPA SNAP list where Stat-X was formerly listed for use only in normally unoccupied and unoccupied areas.
Furthermore, the US EPA has also published an updated risk screen document for the Stat-X agent. This document describes the minimal risks involved with human exposure to Stat-X aerosols, and summarizes the environmental advantages of this agent over comparable halocarbon clean agents, particularly in terms of negligible global warming potential.
