The Law, The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, requires the responsible person for the premises must ensure that everyone is safe from fire.

It is mandatory for the responsible person to undertake a risk assessment which should identify any requirement for a Fire Alarm system and determine the category necessary.

If the risk assessor determines that a Fire Alarm system is required the category should be stated.

Once this has been established a competent person/contractor is required to:

  • Design
  • Install
  • Commission
  • Verify/certify
  • Maintain

Blandfords are certified to be competent to carry out all of the above to achieve a compliance system.


Our In-House CAD Department are able to offer drawing services for all designs as well as produce record drawings for existing systems to assist with the facilities management of the equipment and compliment the system log books.

See our Cad drawing example here.



It is a requirement that Fire Alarm and Emergency Lighting Systems are maintained and tested.

To comply with this requirement guidance is given in BS5839 Part 1 which states that the Fire Alarm Systems should be serviced at least twice a year.

BS5266 part 1 recommends that the Emergency Lighting Systems should be inspected monthly and annually.

Blandfords can offer a Maintenance, Service and Inspection solution for both Fire Alarm and Emergency Systems and provide full certification to ensure that the customer has the correct documented evidence to show they are meeting their required obligations.

Fire Alarm maintenance includes:

  • Compliance with BS5839 Part 1 2017
  • Functionally check the control panel for fire and fault conditions
  • Functionally test detection devices (i.e. apply simulated smoke or heat detectors and activate break glass units)
  • Check Fire Alarm sounders and interface/relay operation Test link to monitoring station (if applicable)
  • Visually check the building for changes and highlight any areas of non-compliance
  • Check signal from Fire Alarm to pager and clarity of test (if applicable)
