TAN-03 Maintenance of Aspirating Smoke Detectors (ASD)

 

Since the publication of AS 1851-2012, FPA Australia's Technical Advisory Committee for maintenance (TAC/1) has identified issues with its requirements for the maintenance of ASDs that have resulted in the application of activities in excess of what is intended or appropriate for these detectors. Also, the current AS 1851-2012 requirements for ASDs may be misinterpreted as requiring actions in excess of what is intended or appropriate for these detectors.

 

To address these issues, FPA Australia developed this Technical Advisory Note to:

  • document these issues;
  • explain how FPA Australia believes the requirements for servicing of ASDs should be satisfied; and
  • advise industry of what changes FPA Australia believes are required to AS 1851-2012 to resolve these issues and provide clarity of intent.
