Project Number 20860
Abstract/Scope This Technical Report gives guidance on the use of standards for alarm systems in the frame of the implementation of the EC directives. Its purpose is: – to find, among all EC directives, those directives which are directly covering equipment used in alarm systems; – to identify the Essential Requirements (ERs) of the above EC directives which have to be taken into account during the standardization process and which should be known by bodies interested with equipment used in alarm systems; – to register the standards that CLC/TC 79 recommends to use for showing presumption of conformity according to the EC directives and the ERs previously identified. This Technical Report mainly covers equipment used in the following fields of activities: access control, alarm transmission, CCTV, fire detection and fire alarm, intrusion and hold-up, social alarm.
