A.3.2.2  Authority Having Jurisdiction   The phrase is used in NFPA documents in a broad manner, since jurisdictions and approval agencies vary, as do their responsibilities.  Where public safety is primary, the authority having jurisdiction may be a federal, state, local, or other regional department or individual such as a fire chief; fire marshal; chief of a fire prevention bureau, labor department, or health department; building official; electrical inspector; or others having statutory authority.  For insurance purposes, an insurance inspection department, rating bureau, or other insurance company representative may be the authority having jurisdiction.  In many circumstances,  the property owner or his or her designated agent assumes the role of the authority having jurisdiction; at government installations, the commanding officer or departmental official may be the authority having jurisdiction.

A.3.3.22.1 Grease Filter.  Filters are expected to minimize the projection of flames downstream when attached by flame on the upstream side and are expected to maintain their strength, shape, and integrity when exposed to the anticipated rough handling, cleaning, and service found in the field.

A.3.3.22.2 Mesh-Type Filter.   This type of filter is not tested, listed, or acceptable for commercial cooking operations due to the increased fire hazard.
