UPDATE!  September 22, 2016
CAN/ULC-S524-14 (includes Amendment 1) introduces an amended Table 2 which defines the required response times for a fire alarm system.  Three important testing requirements are not  included in the Table 2 provided in CAN/ULC-S537-13.  We have updated our Appendix “C” test forms to incorporate the additional testing for those jurisdictions requiring a fire alarm installation to conform to the 2014 Standard for Installation of Fire Alarm Systems (CAN/ULC-S524-14).

CITY OF VANCOUVER Verification Appendix “C” Forms!
UPDATED June 11, 2016 -
A version of the CAN/ULC-S537-04 Appendix “C” report form formatted for use in the City of Vancouver is now available for download.  Look for it in the menu box to the left.  This updated version follows the August 11, 2015 Revision of the City of Vancouver’s Bulletin 2000-21-BU/EL and includes the ability to document Intelligibility Testing in conformance with VBBL 2014 Sentence  The only essential differences from the “C1” page in the Bulletin are in the CERTIFICATION section (where additional wording has been added to help ensure the building owner complies with Division C, Sentence of the British Columbia Fire Code 2012 incorporated into the Vancouver Fire Bylaw 11312), and the rather tasteful colours we’ve chosen to highlight the fillable sections.

UPDATE!  June 11, 2016
Both the “04” and “13” versions of the CAN/ULC-S537 reports now contain an expanded Field Device Testing - Legend section as well as the ability to document Intelligibility Test results.  Even though the “04” version of the Standard doesn’t include this page, NBCC 2010 has been adopted in almost every jurisdiction in Canada and Sentence specifically requires all voice capable systems comply.  Please note that the Building Annual Inspection Form already incorporates CAN/ULC-S536-13.  We’ll be adding relevant testing for NFPA 25-2011 (for those of you lucky enough to be working in Alberta) shortly!

UPDATE!  October 27th, 2015
You can now download both MS Word and PDF versions of the CAN/ULC-S561-13 Appendix “C” report form (Standard for Installation and Services for Fire Signal Receiving Centres and Systems).

UPDATE!  October 1st, 2015
The fire alarm test portion of the Building Annual Inspection Forms now include the ability to document the required testing of correlated output circuits in Section C3.2 Individual Device Record and includes an amended note which references mandatory end-of-line testing.  To learn more about these requirements, please visit our Inspection FAQ.  ALL service providers that are Listed through ULC’s Fire Alarm Certification Program must comply with this testing criteria in accordance with Bulletin 2014-03.  The required end-of-line testing is also referenced in CAN/ULC-S536-04.

Instructions for Downloading:
1. Select the document you want from the Fire Alarm Inspection Forms menu at the left.
2. You'll be prompted to either save as or open a Microsoft® Word™ document (or you can download the PDF version of the file).

If you need help formatting (or customizing) a form with your company's name & logo or if you're using an older version of Microsoft® Word™ and can't open the file, then CONTACT US! We'll be happy to help! If you have suggestions for improvements (or spot an error somewhere), please let us know.  REWARD Offered!



You'll very quickly realize that some of our forms are inspired by (and drawn from) those authored by Larry Barker when he managed Fire Protection Technician Registrations at ASTTBC back in 2007.  ASTTBC has now decided to move all of their testing forms to a “Members Only” section.  For those of you still using the older version forms, please ensure that you, at least, make the changes we suggest below, so that you mitigate your potential personal liability exposure. Your employer should be willing to incorporate these changes.

First of all, remember that in most cases you are working for a LIMITED or INCORPORATED company and your signature must always appear BELOW the company's name. Example:

123 Fire & Safety Ltd.

Sebastian B. Short, RFPT

Secondly, never sign anything in which you aren't seen to be representing the company you're working for.  You should avoid the use of the "first person" (such as in this phrase):

“I state that the information on this form is correct at the time and place of my inspection, and that all equipment was tested in conformance with applicable codes and the Manufacturers requirements and at this time was left in operational condition upon completion of this inspection except as noted in comments.” -- ASTTBC

Instead, we would suggest a small alteration to:

The information on this form (and in the documents attached hereto) attests to the fact that the equipment listed herein has been tested/inspected in conformance with applicable codes, bylaws, standards, and the manufacturer’s requirements by a qualified technician. The equipment was left in an operational condition except as noted in the spaces marked “comments”.

The adoption of the 2015 version of the National Building Code mandates fire alarm systems must be installed to CAN/ULC-S524-14.  There is an amendment to this Standard issued by ULC in January 2016 (which all agencies performing verifications should be aware of).  The Verification Standard referenced by NBC is CAN/ULC-S537-13 which does not address some key changes related to system response times, data loop isolators, power buss isolators, and notification (audio) buss isolators, etc. that appear in the 14 version of the Installation Standard and the Addendum!  Please ensure you review these important changes and additions and that the Verification Appendix “C” form you’re using is amended appropriately to document that testing!

In most Canadian jurisdictions, the adoption of the new National Fire Code (2015) will mandate annual testing of fire alarm systems to CAN/ULC-S536-13 with one key exception.  Alberta’s Building and Fire Codes already references CAN/ULC-S536-13.  Our testing forms are based on the this version.

Please ensure you read our Terms of Use and consult with your local jurisdictional authority before you make use of any forms you find on our site!  The originally formatted test report (which includes CAN/ULC-S536-04 Appendix “E”) we’ve been featuring for a number of years  is still available for comparison.

About OUR Fire Alarm Inspection, Building Life Safety Inspection & Fire Alarm Verification Forms:

One of the first things you'll notice is that we've combined the Fire Alarm Inspection Form, the Fire Extinguisher Annual Inspection Form, the Unit Emergency Lighting Inspection Form and the Sprinkler Systems Inspection Form into one document entitled the Building Life Safety Inspection Form (or Building Annual Inspection Form).

 Another thing you'll notice is that there is now a separate section for Communicator Testing (this follows Appendix C2.11 of CAN/ULC-S536-13).  You have to feel comfortable with ensuring that the communicator is installed correctly and be familiar enough with what it does to properly test it.  In order to help you with this, we've provided a comprehensive guide to communicators in the Tips section of our Library.  How many of you are aware that every ULC/UL fire alarm panel has to be equipped with "dress panels" (also called "dead fronts")?  How many of you are actually checking to see that the smoke detectors installed with the system are actually compatible with it?  A lot of this material is available to you here without paying a membership fee because we feel that there is information you must know and other information you may want to know (to make your job easier and the people living in the buildings you’re testing safer!).  You'll find the latter in our Members section.

We've decided NOT to follow the format of the fire alarm annual inspection form provided by ASTTBC.  Why?  Quite simply, this facilitates being able to include multiple annunciators, power supplies, and standby battery packs so as to make their individual testing results much easier to document.  If you are testing a panel with four sets of batteries and four power supplies (for example) you have only to duplicate the appropriate pages to document the results.

Our forms also feature a checklist for onsite documents which you should ensure are actually there, and which will assist you in providing an inspection service that is as thorough as it is professsional.  Don’t forget that you are part of a much broader “partnership in safety” that includes the local Jurisdictional Authority.  The more detail you can include in your report, the more informed they become of the building’s inadequacies, the better they can communicate the short-comings to the owner, and the safer the occupants and public will be.  Your BUSINESS is LIFE SAFETY.

The new PDF files have blank spaces for the page numbers. All you have to do is fill in the company contact information and you're off.  In the MSWord “DOC” and “DOCX” files, the page numbers will automatically update as you add (or delete) them.  If you have any problems downloading these files, please give us a call.  If you’d like help with including your company’s logo and other pertinent identification in the report, we can help you.  Simply contact us!

The most important thing to realize about ANY form you find here is that they are constantly undergoing revision and additions.  We want you to deliver the highest level of inspection detail possible regardless of whom it might be that you're working for (or with).  This is why it's important for you to consider an annual membership so that we can inform you if there have been changes or additions.  If you have a concern, or want to suggest an addition, revision, or inclusion, then please, contact us!

Note:  Please consider the environment if you do decide to print any forms found on our site by selecting only the pages you need first.
