The Impact of NFPA 3 and NFPA 4 on Sprinkler Systems
As part of the 2018 NFPA code cycle, two documents are changing in ways that will impact the way you do business. First, NFPA 3, Recommended Practice for Commissioning of Fire Protection and Life Safety Systems will become a standard. Both NFPA 3 and NFPA 4, Standard for Integrated Fire Protection and Life Safety System Testing are being incorporated through reference into the International Building Code, NPFA 101, Life Safety Code and NFPA 5000, the Building Construction and Safety Code. The important changes impacting how sprinkler systems are commissioned will be discussed as NFPA 3 becomes a standard. What will you need to do that you aren’t doing now? How will this impact cost and time? The important changes impacting integrated testing will be discussed as NFPA 4 becomes more widely used. Will every sprinkler system supervised by a fire alarm system require integrated testing plans and written procedures? These important topics will be discussed.
