Article 19.11, Article 1.01(3.11) - Offices not used as a control centre
How are offices treated if they are not a control centre as construed by article 1.01(3.9)?
In Article 1.01(3.11) the term “lounge” designates a passenger area. According to article 1.01(3.8), an office is a passenger room and therefore a lounge.
An office shall be deemed to be a control centre and required to be designed in accordance with Article 19.11 as concerns installed partitions in the case of a room permanently occupied by shipboard personnel or crew members, as per article 1.01(3.9) or by fire alarm equipment, remote controls or fire dampers.
