This Published Document describes a scheme which enables I&HASs to be installed and maintained in accordance with published British and European standards and a Draft for Development Technical Specification.

The scheme described in this Published Document applies to IASs, HASs and I&HASs, with wired interconnections and/or wire-free interconnections. However, the scheme does not apply to exterior IASs which are installed in accordance with BS 4737-4.3, nor does it apply to portable hold-up devices which report directly to a monitoring centre.

This Published Document is intended to be applied in conjunction with the standards and documents listed in Clause 3.

This Published Document gives guidance to enable alarm transmission systems to be used in association with alarm systems to be installed, commissioned, monitored, recorded, and maintained in accordance with published British and European standards (e.g. BS EN 50136, all parts), Technical Specifications and Drafts for Development.

NOTE Alarm transmission systems (ATS) provide a means of sending alarm messages (such as fire, intrusion, access control or social alarm), away from the protected premises to an alarm receiving centre.

This Published Document builds upon the existing BS EN 50136 series for alarm transmission systems by providing additional guidance, such as additional ATS performance categories and actions to be taken when the availability fails to meet the required levels.

This Published Document provides a breakdown of perspectives by job role, such as service provider, installer, auditor/inspector, insurer, etc., and indicates the relevant clauses to be followed. It also provides references to specific clauses within the BS EN 50136 series of ATS standards and other relevant national and European standards.

This International standard establishes minimum design and performance requirements for personal protective ensembles to be worn during hazardous materials responses involving chemical gas, vapor, liquid, and particulate hazards. This International Standard provides optional criteria to address protection during terrorism involving chemical and biological terrorism agents. This International Standard provides optional criteria to address the ability of ensembles to retain their integrity during escape in the event of chemical flash fire. This International standard does not establish minimum criteria for protection against radiological hazards, or from exposure to chemical flash fires, flammable, or explosive atmospheres. This International Standard does not pertain to clothing use in any firefighting application. This International standard does not address respiratory protection.
