This is the third in a series of four webinars designed to give code authorities and alarm companies a better understanding of UL’s alarm certificate services program and how it relates to nationally recognized codes and standards.
Examine the International Building Code (IBC) and International Fire Code (IFC) perspective regarding fire alarm systems and references made to NFPA 72 as the standard for fire alarm systems compliance. The presentation will include multiple sections of the code process related to fire alarm system requirements based on occupancy type and hazards, the process of system monitoring requirements found within the technical standard of NFPA 72 and specific supervising station types.
Upon successful completion of this webinar, a listener will have a better understanding of how the code and technical standard work together, where, when and why fire alarm systems are required from the code process and how the code authority can approve the supervising station monitoring type via language embedded within the regulatory environment.
- Understand and discuss building and fire code requirements relating to fire alarm systems
- Recognize the role and relationship between building and fire code requirements and technical standards like NFPA 72
- Explain building and fire code requirements and NFPA 72 requirements for fire alarm systems monitoring and compliance methodologies
