Smoke alarm certificate requirements in UK
On any premises; whether residential or commercial, the notion of fire always exists. It is therefore required by the UK regulations to get fire alarm installed at every building. This installation helps in timely evacuation of residents or staff members from the danger zone in case of any emergency. Chances of any harm to human life; therefore, is reduced.
However, simple installation of fire alarm is not enough. They must be kept of operational nature all the time. The UK government has outlined fire alarm regulations which require system to be ‘adequately maintained’. For this purpose, section 25.2 of Fire detection and fire alarm systems requires all the fire alarms to be self-tested by the users at least on a weekly basis. This helps in ensuing that there has not been any major failure and the system is in working condition.
