The distribution and commissioning of fire-extinguishing facilities is generally subject to the requirements of EU directives governing construction products (89/106/EEC) and pressure equipment (97/23/EC).
KAN's essential concern is to point out to standards committees that requirements concerning testing, installation and maintenance may be included in standards and fulfil their purpose only where they are addressed in the first instance to manufacturers and distributors as requirements for instruction handbooks.
It is furthermore in the interest of occupational health and safety to support product-integrated fire protection - for example in machinery/plants - as an efficient and rapid measure of fire-fighting at source.
