The NFPA 3 Standard for Commissioning of Fire Protection and Life Safety Systems, 2018 Edition is the only guide to have a complete commissioning program for fire protection and life safety systems. These systems can save lives so it’s incredibly important to keep them up-to-date and current with the newest regulations and changes.
This manual works hand-in-hand with NFPA 4: Standard for Integrated Fire Protection and Life Safety System Testing. The NFPA 3 covers everything from a building’s life cycle to forms and reports for baseline documentation. Its adaptable over several different protection systems like fire alarms, emergency communication and smoke control.
There have been several different updates applied to this 2018 edition that have changed some of the recommended standards to mandatory standards. If you don’t update your code to the 2018 you stay with these standards being recommendations instead of requirements. Grab your copy and update your codes today!
