    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies management procedures for controlling the inspection and testing of required fire and smoke control features associated with air-handling systems in buildings, to ensure their effective availability. Mandatory requirements for the frequency of simple inspections are laid down as Level 1 routines. Informative recommendations for more complex and detailed inspections are laid down in Levels 2, 3 and 4.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies management procedures for controlling the inspection and testing of required fire and smoke control features associated with air-handling systems in buildings, to ensure their effective availability.NOTES:1 The procedures set out in this Standard and all consequential corrective actions, preferably, should be carried out, or at least be supervised, by competent personnel.2 In the assessing of the need for corrective action, regard should be given to the various factors which may affect the precise performance from day to day. For this reason, critical limits of performance will need to be known. In this context a critical limit sets the level of a performance characteristic beyond which its effect could become detrimental to life safety.3 It is recommended that the management system developed for the maintenance of the fire-precaution features of the air-handling systems is integrated with the management systems developed for other associated building services such as lifts, smoke detection systems, fire suppression systems and emergency power systems to create an integrated maintenance management system.
