Domestic Fire Alarms - Inspection Certificate
#1
Evening fellas.

We are acquiring quite a few assisted living sites. A lot of them are bungalows, small houses and at the moment we don't have a form for testing mains smoke alarms in the properties. I haven't been able to find any model certificates online, probably not going to as I can't even find any proper guidance on maintenance in the regs! So I am drafting up a test and inspection report to how I think we should checking them on an annual basis. This is what I have come up with so far:

Test & Inspection Report for Domestic Fire Alarms
BS 5839-6 2019

Section A : Visual Inspection:
1. The logbook has been checked and any outstanding defects have been resolved
2. We have verified the site have not experienced any persistent false alarms
3. The building occupier and their staff are trained on suitable testing and operating procedures
4. The premises have been inspected and verified that the structure or occupancy have not changed
5. All smoke, heat and Co2 alarms are correctly sited and are not obstructed
6. All smoke, heat and Co2 alarms are clean and in good condition
7. All smoke, heat and Co2 alarms replacement date labels are legible and have not been exceeded

Section B : Functional Tests:
8. All smoke, heat and Co2 alarms have been tested and confirmed for correct operation
9. All interlinks and relay outputs (if fitted) have been tested and confirmed for correct operation
10. All control switches (silence, test & identify functions if fitted) confirmed for correct operation

Section C : Engineer Comments
(In case any issues are found and further detail can be given)

Section D : Declaration
I/We being the competent person(s) responsible (as indicated by my/our signatures below) for the test and inspection of the fire alarms at the above address, confirm all devices (unless stated in the engineers comments section) have been tested for satisfactory operation and inspected in accordance with the recommendations of 24.2 of BS 5839-6:2019, except for the variations, if any, stated on this document.

Engineer prints and signs the document.


Whats your opinion guys? anything you think I should add, change or remove?

TIA

You know there is a model certificate for servicing all grades in the new 2019 edition
Plus an annex of what should be done for each grade plus a table with the frequency of service?

The certificate is on my work laptop somewhere as it was my design that got accepted in the new revision
I’ll post it up tomorrow

I had no idea Will, it was a few months ago when I was searching for it. I did see a servicing cert in part 6 but I thought that was only applicable to Grade A systems. The only model certificates I thought I had found were for installation and commissioning on grades C, D and F. 

If you could post your cert up that would be brilliant. Thank you.

Co2 alarms ?

Interesting.... Is CO2 a risk these days in most premises that don't specifically have CO2 in them?

I'd probably go with a CO alarm :)
