Removal of redundant Sprinklers

I am aware that any device (sprinkler, valves, alarm switch) that is a part of a system that is no longer in service, needs to be removed. This is to not give the occupants the impression that they are protected, when in fact they are not. 


I have a building that has been retrofitted from a wet to a dry with many new lines and sprinklers installed. I have begun to remove redundant material from hallways etc... some hallways had 2 lines (one live, one dead)... I am trying to find the code in the NFPA standard that states these sprinklers need to be removed” I’ve read this very recently, however, I can’t seem to find it in the the standard.... Can anyone help me locate this code?   Does cda cda have any suggestions?
