It is important that all individuals engaged in the surveying, designing, installing and maintaining of electronic security systems to meet the requirements of PD 6662: 2017 should be aware of the basic contents of the Standard for Installation, EN 50131-1, and the document containing Alarm Systems Application Guidelines, DD CLC/TS 50131-7. Also, where required, those individuals should have an understanding of BS 8243, Intruder and Hold-Up Alarm Systems designed to generate Confirmed Alarms. In order to determine the correct Security Grade of the system, designers should also understand the concept of a security risk assessment and the grading criteria.
Who should attend?
System designers, installation, commissioning and maintenance engineers who need to be able to demonstrate their competence in the tasks they carry out.
