The council's decision is to "… prohibit the use of antifreeze solutions within all NFPA 13D applications and within the dwelling unit portions of NFPA 13 and NFPA 13R sprinkler systems." However, the Standards Council also directed that the responsible technical committees conduct further activities in regard to this question.
