Passive fire protection at slab edge in hi-rise

I wonder could you send me a diagram showing the installation of passive fire protection between floors at the slab edge in a hi-rise building. I am trying to convince my local hospital that a rip of close painted plywood with no sealant is not exactly in line with regulation and law, and any info you can supply will be very much appreciated.
Best regards

I don't know about me sending you a diagram I would sooner you send me a diagram to explain the situation because I do not fully understand the situation. I do agree there should be fire stopping between floors and painted plywood would not be suitable but how does it compare with Approved Document Part B Fire Safety. or why does the slab not form part of the frame or sit on a wall? Your best source of information would be The Passive Fire Protection Federation or companies that provide sealant solutions.
