HUGE CHANGE ON THE HORIZON FOR TECHNICIANS ENGAGED IN VERIFYING FIRE ALARM SYSTEMS!
Toronto, British Columbia - The Working Group developing Canada’s new Standard for Installation of Ancillary Devices Connected to Fire Alarm Systems (CAN/ULC-S573) just wrapped up the Public Comments Review process. That means that this Installation Standard is going to undergo an editorial review before it’s off to the formal final Ballot and official publication. Yes, I did state “Installation Standard”. Designers, Installers, and Verifers will have TWO separate sets of rules to contend with once it’s referenced in the National Building Code in 2020.
We’ll update you with some details shortly!
