    Question to Joe Gardiner Jon Wilson,

    If the Sprinkler Company Service report indicates the that system is inspected/tested to NFPA 25, are you asking for all deficiencies be corrected to meet the standard? or just the inspection, testing and maintenance (6.5.4. to 6.5.6)?

    For Lesley-Ann,

    If the system was a design system under design requirement prescribed by the OBC you can use 1.1.1.2.(2), to repair or maintain to ensure it operates as designed as a part of a life safety system as the Fire Code does not force then to use NFPA 25 check, test and maintain. The tricky part is the next sentence (1.1.1.2.(3)) where is states “adversely affect”, so some background knowledge on sprinkler systems would be beneficial.

    Example: The Service Company report states that the gauges on the system are over 5 years old and need to be changed would not be considered something that would adversely affect the sprinkler system.

    Hope this helps
