Authority Having Jurisdiction

As the only nonprofit organization dedicated to fire prevention and life safety by promoting kitchen exhaust cleaning to a higher standard, IKECA is working diligently to educate, inform and partner with authorities having jurisdiction throughout North America.
The Basic Information all Fire, Life Safety, and Code Officials Should Reference. This handy reference presents questions to consider upon inspection of a commercial kitchen and includes questions regarding: Fire Protection, Specialty Equipment, Exhuast Fans, Duct Work, Hoods, Cooking Equipment, New Construction/Pre-Occupancy Inspections, the Cooking Operation, Proper Documentation and the Service Provider. AHJs should always refer to the approved code that guides their jurisdiction.

Complimentary Membership in IKECA for Publicly Funded AHJs! As a result of the very first AHJ committee meeting at which a recommendation was made to offer complimentary membership to AHJs in light of budgetary constraints, the IKECA board of directors has approved offering publicly funded AHJs complimentary membership in IKECA. Spread the word to your local AHJs or apply for membership here.

Complimentary Fire Authority Training.  IKECA hosts Fire Authority Training to provide AHJs with key information about inspections and how to identify a properly cleaned commercial kitchen exhaust system during our two annual meetings per year.  If you cannot make it to an upcoming meeting, you may also contact IKECA Headquarters to request a training in your area:
