Fire detection and alarm systems -- Part 14: Design, installation, commissioning and service of fire detection and fire alarm systems in and around buildings

ISO 7240-14:2013 specifies the design, installation, commissioning, and service requirements for a fire detection and alarm system (FDAS), which is primarily intended to provide early detection of fire and notification within one or more specified indoor or outdoor areas for the protection of lives. The FDAS includes automatic detection of a fire and manual initiation of a fire alarm, with audible and visual warning to people within the detection area.

ISO 7240-14:2013 also specifies requirements for FDAS capable of providing signals to audible warning systems in accordance with ISO 7240-19, to initiate the operation of ancillary technical services, such as fixed fire extinguishing systems, and to other precautions and actions.

The protection of property is outside the scope of ISO 7240-14:2013. However, the requirements specified herein may be used as recommendations for property protection.
