Ignition protection of electrical equipment is only required in a compartment containing a gasoline tank or gasoline engine.
ABYC "AC and DC Electrical Systems On Boats" Standard E-11, US Code of Federal Regulations Title 33 and Transport Canada TP1332E require that all electrical equipment in a compartment containing gasoline must be ignition protected and be marked accordingly as meeting the SAE J1171 External Ignition Protection of Marine Electrical Devices and/or UL1500 Ignition Protection Test for Marine Products.
