Fire Control Systems
European regulations require that fire control products be CE marked to show compliance with the applicable European Directives.
The directives applicable to these products are the following:
- EMC Directive, 2004/108/CE (2014/30/EU from 2016/04/20)
- Low Voltage Directive, 2006/95/CE 2014/35/EU from 2016/04/20)
- Construction Products Regulation, CPR EU 305/2011
With regard to CPR, due to the fact that FDAS products are covered by System 1, the procedure of assessment and verification of constancy of performance requires involvement of a notified body.
