Anyone aware of the worldwide norms for escape patch on commercial aircraft....its black on B737s & red on A320s.
Any reference to the rule.

As far as I can tell, there is nothing in the ICAO Annexes covering this, so it would be up to each country's regulatory authority.

FAR part 25.810

Quote:
(c) An escape route must be established from each overwing emergency exit, and (except for flap surfaces suitable as slides) covered with a slip resistant surface. Except where a means for channeling the flow of evacuees is provided—

(1) The escape route from each Type A or Type B passenger emergency exit, or any common escape route from two Type III passenger emergency exits, must be at least 42 inches wide; that from any other passenger emergency exit must be at least 24 inches wide; and

(2) The escape route surface must have a reflectance of at least 80 percent, and must be defined by markings with a surface-to-marking contrast ratio of at least 5:1.

No reference to color. The markings just have to contrast with the background significantly.

linky thing
Rule #176. Any device that can crawl across the table on medium, does not need to be brought into the office.
