SECTION 3. MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES
3.1 WEEKLY. The weekly maintenance procedure
shall be performed as follows:
(a) Initiate a simulated fire alarm on an alarm zone so
as to transmit an alarm to the fire control station.
Check for proper operation of the associated alarm
visual indicator(s). Ascertain that the alarm was
correctly received at the fire control station.
The above test shall be carried out in a manner
acceptable to the fire control station.
(b) Check for satisfactory operation of the fire alarm
bell or warning device.
(c) Reset installation to normal.
(d) Check the battery condition by operating the battery
test facility for 1 min, and record the ‘battery
condition’ in the logbook.
(e) On completion of (a), (b), (c), and (d) above,
ensure that all switches are in the correct operating
position, and if a faulty condition exists advise the
owner or his agent.
(f) Record the results of all weekly maintenance
procedures in the logbook, including whether the
fire alarm signal from the alarm zone facility was
received at the fire control station (see Clause 4.2).

requiring corrective action, adjustment, and the like
(see Clause 4.2).
(m) Check that items previously recorded as requiring
attention have been attended to, or record the
reason (if known) why corrective actions have not
been completed.
3.3 YEARLY. The yearly maintenance procedure
shall be performed as follows:
NOTE: Prior to yearly maintenance procedures the maintenance
person should give the owner or his agent sufficient notice of
testing to allow time for witnessing to be arranged.

3.2 MONTHLY. The monthly maintenance procedure
shall be performed as follows:
(a) Perform weekly maintenance procedure.
(b) Test each alarm zone facility to confirm its ability
to operate the master alarm facility.
(c) Check all battery terminals and electrolyte levels,
where appropriate. Maintain all batteries in a
serviceable condition.
(d) Check condition of battery enclosure for corrosion
and ensure the batteries are stored in a safe and
secure condition.

(a) Perform weekly and monthly maintenance
procedures.
(b) Visually inspect all detectors and sampling points
for any condition which is likely to adversely affect
their operation, such as excessive deposition of dust
or coating of paint.
(c) Remove at least one detector on each alarm zone
circuit and confirm the fault signal is registered at
the appropriate alarm zone facility.
(d) Check the operation of 20 percent of the installed
heat detectors and 50 percent of the installed smoke
detectors, flame detectors, and sampling points in
each alarm zone using the equipment specified in
Appendix B. The procedure for testing shall be
such that all detectors are checked not less than
once every 5 years for heat detectors, and not less
than once every 2 years for smoke detectors, flame
detectors, and sampling points.
Where a detector has not been tested in situ, upon
reinstallation the detector shall be activated to
cause an alarm at the alarm zone facility.
Detectors and sampling points that fail to operate
shall be clearly marked and reported in the
logbook.

NOTE: Where the control and indicating equipment does not
have a battery test facility, check condition of the storage
batteries by a load test (refer to Clause 2.8.8 of AS 1603.4).

NOTE: Depending on the environment detectors and filters in
sampling systems may require cleaning or replacement at
periodic intervals.

(e) Check that all visual indicators are operating
correctly, including those on mimic or repeater
panels.
(f) Check the operation of all aural and visual
indicators external to the control and indicating
equipment.
(g) Simulate fault conditions on all alarm zones to
ensure that fault indicators, both aural and visual
where applicable, are operating correctly from each
alarm zone facility.
(h) Check that all control and indicating equipment is
in a clean and operational condition, and effectively
dust-sealed.
(j) Ensure that all fire indicator panels, subindicator
panels, repeater panels, and mimic panels are
clearly visible and readily accessible (see
AS 1670).
(k) Ensure that all controls are returned to the normal
condition.
(l) Record the results of all monthly maintenance
procedures in the logbook, including all items

(e) Check the operation of all ancillary control
facilities and ensure that each controlled device can
be correctly initiated.
(f) Check operation of all manual call points.
(g) Check the power supply supervision alarm, if
applicable, by disconnecting all power supplies to
the fire indicator panel, including battery supplies.
(h) Visually inspect control and indicating equipment
components for any evidence of deterioration.
(j) Check for any building alterations, changes in the
environment, or utilization of the protected area
which would require modifications to the system.
(k) Ensure spare glasses for manual call points and a
tool for replacing such glasses are available in the
control panel.
(l) Record the results of all yearly maintenance
procedures in the logbooks, including details of
detectors and sampling points that do not pass the
visual inspection or fail to operate satisfactorily,
and notify the owner or his agent of any
deficiencies within the installation.

commissioning test report shall be prepared on
durable, good quality paper, clearly legible and
contained in a plastics cover or alternatively bound
into the operator’s manual.
(b) Operator’s manual as specified in AS 1603.4.
(c) Logbook.

Licensed to LUU MINH LUAN on 25 Feb 2002. Single user licence only. Storage, distribution or use on network prohibited.

The maintenance documentation given above shall be
housed in a secure location at the fire indicator panel,
or as otherwise approved by the Regulatory Authority.
The documentation shall describe the actual state of the
installation as it currently exists including all
modifications, additions, and deletions. If any changes
or additions are made to the installation, the relevant
records shall be updated, i.e. installer’s statement,
as-installed diagrams, operator’s manual, and the like.

4.2 LOGBOOK. A logbook shall be provided to
sequentially record all known alarms, faults,
disconnections, and all maintenance and inspection
procedures carried out so that there is a composite
record of all events related to the installation. The
logbook shall remain the property of the building
owner.
The logbook shall be substantially bound, not in a
loose-leaf manner, and in triplicate format with
numbered pages.
The logbook shall consist of the following:
(a) Name of owner or his agent and the reporting
location.

APPENDIX B

FIRE DETECTOR TESTERS
B1 SCOPE. This Appendix sets out requirements for devices for the testing of fire detectors installed in
automatic fire detection and alarm systems.
B2 REQUIREMENTS. Device(s) for the testing of fire detectors and sampling points shall not adversely affect
the operation of the fire detector nor change its sensitivity. Such devices shall not produce a fire risk, i.e.
contain a naked flame or ember not enclosed.
For testing a detector in situ or upon reinstallation of any detector, the detector shall be tested by applying the
phenomenon for which it is designed to detect in a manner representative of normal operation, i.e. heat to a heat
detector, aerosol (see Note) to a smoke detector, optical attenuator to a beam type optical smoke detector, and
electromagnetic radiation to a flame detector.
NOTE: The term aerosol is considered to be a suspension of particles in air.

Fire detector tester(s) and test methods acceptable to the detector manufacturer as appropriate to assess the
response characteristics of the detector shall be used. The detectors, as tested, shall comply with the limits of
response characteristics, e.g. operating times, specified by the detector manufacturer. Such limits shall be
representative of expected response for detectors commensurate with manufacturing tolerances and operational
factors.
Testers should be of robust construction, designed for transportability and ease of use.
NOTES:
1. For non-resettable heat detectors, an in situ test may not be appropriate. In such cases, it is recommended that an appropriate number
of detectors be replaced each year so that every 5 years all detectors have been replaced.
2. A test for response characteristics of flame detectors is considered necessary to the maintenance of the detectors; however, current
technology offers no acceptable test procedure, hence a test for detector sensitivity is not included in this Appendix.
