Hazardous Materials Inventory

Hazardous Materials Inventory Statement (HMIS)

The International Building and Fire Code requires businesses to provide a Hazardous Materials Inventory Statement (HMIS), so that building and fire plan reviewers can determine what code provisions apply to your project. Without the HMIS, Puget Sound Fire cannot review the plans. The HMIS will assist Fire Inspectors to ensure that your business is in compliance with the International Fire Code during annual inspections.

The instructions and documents below will provide Puget Sound Fire with a simple HMIS, which will be used as a preliminary screening tool. Depending on your situation, it is possible a more detailed HMIS will be required. Please read the HMIS instructions below for further information and submittal procedures.

HMIS Instructions
HMIS-Reporting-Spreadsheet – Fillable forms provided in an Excel workbook for your use, and include Company Information Sheet, Inventory Report, Summary Report, and Temperature Conversion Calculator.
