Standards Australia has published a new edition of AS 1851-2012, Routine service of fire protection systems and equipment.
The standard, which is about ensuring fire systems are designed, commissioned, and installed to a level which will protect the community, will be a critical document for building owners and managers, as well as the wider community, according to Colin Blair, chief executive officer of Standards Australia.
“It’s important that fire systems are maintained to ensure reliability, functionality and performance. This revised standard supports that objective,” he states.
The revision of AS 1851 is a result of extensive consultation and input from industry participants, regulators, government, fire and emergency services, and technical committee members, who all provided significant assistance by engaging the necessary stakeholders throughout the revision process.
“The 2005 edition of AS 1851 served us well, however we are very excited about the new edition,” Scott Williams, chief executive officer of the Fire Protection Association of Australia, comments.
The new edition of AS 1851-2012 Routine service of fire protection systems and equipment is available from SAI Global here: www.saiglobal.com/shop.
