On July of 2008, the FAA issued a rule making that makes it necessary for Aircraft manufacturers to provide procedures to reduce flammability for all airplanes with heated fuel tanks located all or partially within the Aircraft fuselage.
CFR Title 14, §26.33 requires installation of a CFR Title 14, §25.981 Amendment 25-125 (or later) compliant Flammability Reduction System (FRS), such as an ‘Inerting System’ or ‘Ignition Mitigation System’ on all Transport Category airplanes with Original Manufacturer Certificate of Airworthiness or Export Airworthiness Certificate issued on or after January 1, 1962.
This Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) is an FAA approved method of compliance (MOC) to the requirements of 25.981 and 121.1117 in the flowing aircraft: B737 - (300 - 900), B757 - (200), and B767 - (200-300).
It is an alternative to the Boeing Nitrogen Inerting System.
