BS5306-3:2017 Extinguisher Servicing
We have technical reasons for proposing 2 x P50s on each fire point, so I accept our coverage will be excessive BS wise. 

The plan is CO2 only at HV areas, which there are many. DP is not an option.

Its  interesting that previous customers change the lot. I do not think we have a choice when you think of the training complications,

If it happens, it will be in the new financial year. We will need around 400 P50s for the first building and a huge brave leap of faith from our H&S board who need to ratify the change(They are not known for their bravery, so I reckon its 50/50 at best)
I still don't see why you are bothering with P50 if you are still going to have to pay for annual servicing of CO2, it will reduce costs a bit I suppose, especially if you are only paying the bottom rate for the P50's (i.e. not three figures a unit!) but complicates management a bit!

After the changes, a service engineer will only be servicing a handful of CO2 units across plant and HV areas covering a small proportion of the building - around 15% of the total area, whilst in house maintenance guys will service the P50s across the remaining 85% of the building.

Huge savings ££££££
