    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard is the modified adoption IEC 60849:1998, which applies to sound reinforcement and distribution systems to be used to effect a rapid and orderly mobilization of occupants in an indoor or outdoor area in an emergency situation. It applies to systems using tone signals and to systems with voice announcements for emergency purposes.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This International Standard applies to sound reinforcement and distribution systems to be used to effect a rapid and orderly mobilization of occupants in an indoor or outdoor area in an emergency situation. This standard applies to systems using tone signals and to systems with voice announcements for emergency purposes. NOTES 1 The use of the system for normal sound reinforcement and distribution systems purposes under nonhazardous circumstances is not excluded. 2 It is recommended that the system, when used for emergency purposes, should form part of a complete facility (equipment, operating procedures and training programmes) for the control of emergencies. 3 Sound systems for emergency purposes may be the subject of approval by relevant authorities.
