BS 5839 Regulations
BS5839 comes into effect - March 2013

Posted by Charlie Metcalfe in Fire Safety

BS5839 Part 1:2013 – Code of Practice for the Design, Installation, Commissioning and maintenance of Fire Alarm Systems in non-domestic properties.

The 5th revision of this British Standard came into effect on the 31st March 2013 and now supersedes BS 5839-1:2002 + A2:2008. The standard introduces many new technical standards, definitions and not the least new requirements around zone plans.

For our existing customers our engineers will be checking to ensure that your system is compliant with the new standard and making recommendations for any necessary changes following your regular service visits.
