According to IGC-Code with regards to compressor room:

12.1.7 Ventilation intakes should be so arranged as to minimize the possibility of re-cycling hazardous vapours from any ventilation discharge opening.

Compliance with this paragraph may be satisfied by installing self-closing suction flaps. However, to the best of our knowledge there is no direct requirement for installation of suction flaps in the compressor room.
