NFPA 4 Standard for Integrated Fire Protection and Life Safety System Testing, 2018 edition

NFPA 4: Standard for Integrated Fire Protection and Life Safety System Testing outlines specific test scenarios to confirm the operation, interaction, and coordination of multiple individual systems perform their intended function.  Invaluable to facility managers, the insurance industry and the Integrated Testing Agent (ITa) as well as other stakeholders in the testing process, NFPA 4: Standard for Integrated Fire Protection and Life Safety System Testing provides the minimum requirements for integrated testing and documentation prior to building occupancy and during a building's lifecycle.  Help ensure that integrated fire protection and life safety systems operate as intended with NFPA 4's testing scenario requirements for both new and existing systems.  Built around requirements formerly located in NFPA 3's Chapter 7, Integrated System Testing, NFPA 4 includes the protocol for testing procedures, responsibilities of team members, methods, and documentation for verifying the operational readiness and sequence of integrated systems. While the Standard does not mandate integrated testing, it provides minimum requirements for integrated testing where such testing is required by another code, standard, or design document or by an AHJ. The Standard does not address testing protocol, procedures, or frequencies for individual systems.  NFPA 4 has comprehensive chapters on:  Administration, referenced publications, and definitions General requirements including fundamental principles, integrated system testing team responsibilities and qualifications, and the test plan Test methods, issues logs, and corrective action reports Test frequencies including separate provisions for Initial Integrated Systems Test, Periodic Integrated Systems Testing, and Existing System Modifications Annexes A and B with explanatory material and a Sample Integrated Test Plan NFPA 4 backs up NFPA 3 with comprehensive and detailed provisions for fieldwork.  It covers all the procedures, methods, responsibilities, and documentation required to ensure integrated testing is done correctly, in any building regardless of age and designated use.
