Fumigation and thermal insecticidal fogging operations within structures shall comply with this rule.
Permits shall be required as set forth in rule 1301:7-7-01 of the Administrative Code.

The following words and terms shall, for the purposes of this rule and as used elsewhere in this code, have the meanings shown herein.

“Fumigant.” A substance which by itself or in combination with any other substance emits or liberates a gas, fume or vapor utilized for the destruction or control of insects, fungi, vermin, germs, rats or other pests, and shall be distinguished from insecticides and disinfectants which are essentially effective in the solid or liquid phases. Examples are methyl bromide, ethylene dibromide, hydrogen cyanide, carbon disulfide and sulfuryl fluoride.

“Fumigation.” The utilization within an enclosed space of a fumigant in concentrations that are hazardous or acutely toxic to humans.

“Thermal insecticidal fogging.” The utilization of insecticidal liquids passed through thermal fog-generating units where, by means of heat, pressure and turbulence, such liquids are transformed and discharged in the form of fog or mist blown into an area to be treated.

Structures in which fumigation and thermal insecticidal fogging operations are conducted shall comply with the fire protection and safety requirements of paragraphs (C)(2)(1703.2) to (C)(7)(1703.7) of this rule.
Fires, open flames and similar sources of ignition shall be eliminated from the space under fumigation or thermal insecticidal fogging. Heating, where needed, shall be of an approved type.

Electricity shall be shut off.

Exception: Circulating fans that have been specifically designed for utilization in hazardous atmospheres and installed in accordance with NFPA 70 as listed in rule 1301:7-7-47 of the Administrative Code.
The fire code official and fire chief shall be notified in writing at least 24 hours before the structure is to be closed in connection with the utilization of any toxic or flammable fumigant. Notification shall give the location of the enclosed space to be fumigated or fogged, the occupancy, the fumigants or insecticides to be utilized, the person or persons responsible for the operation, and the date and time at which the operation will begin. Notice of any fumigation or thermal insecticidal fogging shall be served with sufficient advance notice to the occupants of the enclosed space involved to enable the occupants to evacuate the premises.
Approved warning signs indicating the danger, type of chemical involved and necessary precautions shall be posted on all doors and entrances to the premises and upon all gangplanks and ladders from the deck, pier or land to the ship. Such notices shall be printed in red ink on a white background. Letters in the headlines shall be at least 2 inches (51 mm) in height and shall state the date and time of the operation, the name and address of the person, the name of the operator in charge, and a warning stating that the occupied premises shall be vacated at least 1 hour before the operation begins and shall not be reentered until the danger signs have been removed by the proper authorities.
Persons engaged in the business of fumigation or thermal insecticidal fogging shall maintain and have available approved protective breathing apparatus.
During the period fumigation is in progress, except when fumigation is conducted in a gas-tight vault or tank, a capable, alert watcher shall remain on duty at the entrance or entrances to the enclosed fumigated space until after the fumigation is completed and the premises properly ventilated and safe for occupancy. Sufficient watchers shall be provided to prevent persons from entering the enclosed space under fumigation without being observed.
Thermal insecticidal fogging liquids with a flash point below 100°F (38°C) shall not be utilized.
Paper and other similar materials that do not meet the flame propagation performance criteria of NFPA 701 as listed in rule 1301:7-7-47 of the Administrative Code shall not be used to wrap or cover a building in excess of that required for the sealing of cracks, casements and similar openings.
At the end of the exposure period, fumigators shall safely and properly ventilate the premises and contents; properly dispose of fumigant containers, residues, debris and other materials used for such fumigation; and clear obstructions from gas-fired appliance vents.

The use of carbon disulfide and hydrogen cyanide shall be restricted to agricultural fumigation.
