The basic purpose of the National Fire Protection Association Codes is to keep people safe.  Many of the local fire ordinances are based on these codes. These codes are also used to create the NAR & Tripoli Rocketry safety codes.

NFPA 1122: Code for Model Rocketry – Usage, storage and information for model rocket users (NAR safety code is based on this document).

NFPA 1125: Code for the Manufacture of Model Rocket and High Power Rocket Motors – Only need this for making your own rocket motors.

NFPA 1127: Code for High Power Rocketry – Usage, storage and information for High Power rocket users (NAR  & Tripoli safety codes is based on this document).

These are the regulations that control the shipping of Model and High Power rocket motors.

49 CFR Subchapter C Hazardous Materials Regulations – Federal regulations regarding the shipment of High Power rocket motors (HAZMAT).  Describes packaging, handling, and transportation.

COMBUSTIBLE LIQUIDS Materials whose FP is greater than 141 F but less than 200EF are still regulated domestically as combustible liquids. Materials transported domestically only, whose FPs are 100 F up to 141 F may be reclassified as combustible in accordance with 173.120(b).

A COMBUSTIBLE LIQUID which does not sustain combustion is not subject to the requirements of the HMRs. See Appendix H, Part 173 for the required tests.

Lithium Batteries Requirements per IATA . Lithium batteries have become the preferred energy source to power a wide variety of consumer goods ranging from mobile phones to children toys to cars and e-bikes. Though widely used, most people are not aware that lithium batteries are dangerous goods that can pose a safety risk if not prepared in accordance with the transport regulations. To help with compliance, IATA has developed guidance for shippers, freight forwarders, ground handlers, airlines, and passengers.
