Standard for the Installation of Carbon Monoxide (CO) Detection and Warning Equipment
|Publication Date:||1 January 2012|
This standard is primarily concerned with life safety, not with protection of property.
This standard covers the selection, design, application, installation, location, performance, inspection, testing, and maintenance of carbon monoxide detection and warning equipment in buildings and structures.
This standard contains requirements for the selection, installation, operation, and maintenance of equipment that detects concentrations of carbon monoxide that could pose a life safety risk to most occupants in buildings and structures.
The purpose of this standard is to provide requirements for carbon monoxide detection and warning equipment intended to warn occupants of the presence of carbon monoxide in sufficient time to allow occupants to either escape or take other appropriate action and where required to summon aid.
The requirements provided by this standard address the means of signal initiation, transmission, notification, and annunciation; the levels of performance; and the reliability of carbon monoxide detection and warning equipment.
