Code for High Power Rocketry

active
Organization: NFPA
Publication Date: 1 January 2018
Status: active
Page Count: 25
scope:

Purpose.

The purpose of this code shall be to establish guidelines for reasonably safe operation of high power rockets to protect the user and the public.

The purpose of this code shall be to discourage the following to minimize deaths and injuries:

(1) Experiments with explosive or highly energetic rocket propellants

(2) Construction of homemade rocket propulsion motors

(3) Attempted launches or operation of homemade rocket devices

Application.

This code shall apply to the design, construction, limitation of rocket propellant mass and power, and reliability of high power rocket motors and motor components produced commercially for sale or for use by a certified user for education, recreation, and sporting competition.

This code also shall apply to the design and construction of high power rockets propelled by the high power rocket motors specified in Section 1.3.

This code shall apply to the conduct of launch operations of high power rockets specified in 1.3.1.

This code shall not apply to the design, construction, production, manufacture, fabrication, maintenance, launch, flight, test, operation, use, or other activity connected with a rocket or rocket motor where carried out or engaged in by the following entities:

(1) National, state, or local government

(2) An individual, a firm, a partnership, a joint venture, a corporation, or other business entity engaged as a licensed business in the research, development, production, testing, maintenance, or supply of rockets, rocket motors, rocket propellant chemicals, or rocket components or parts

(3) College or university 1.3.4 This code shall not apply to the design, construction, fabrication, production, manufacture, maintenance, launch, flight, test, operation, or use of rocket-propelled model aircraft that sustain their mass against the force of gravity by aerodynamic lifting surfaces for the duration of their flight in air, but shall apply to high power rocket motors and their components that provide propulsion for such model aircraft.

This code shall not apply to model or toy rockets propelled by pressurized liquid. 

This code shall not apply to the following:

(1) Model rockets as specified in NFPA 1122

(2) Fireworks rockets, skyrockets, and rockets with sticks as defined in NFPA 1123 or NFPA 1126
