This European standard specifies oxygen reduction systems that are used as fire prevention systems by creating an atmosphere in an area which is having a lower permanent oxygen concentration as in ambient conditions. The level of oxygen reduction is defined by the individual risks of these areas (see Annex A). Oxygen reduction is achieved by technical systems which are providing a flux of air containing a reduced concentration of oxygen.
This European standard specifies minimum requirements and defines the specifications governing the design, installation and maintenance of fixed oxygen reduction systems with oxygen reduced air in buildings and industrial production plants. The standard also applies to the extension and modification of existing systems.
This European standard applies to oxygen reduction systems using nitrogen which are designed for continual oxygen reduction in enclosed spaces.
NOTE   Nitrogen is today the most suitable gas to be used for oxygen reduction. For other gases this European standard can be used as basis.
This European standard does not apply to oxygen reduction systems that use water mist or combustion gases.
The European standard does not apply to:
-   explosion suppression systems;
-   explosion prevention systems;
-   fire extinguishing systems using gaseous extinguishing agents;
-   inertization of portable containers;
-   systems in which oxygen levels are reduced for reasons other than fire prevention (e.g. steel processing in the presence of inert gas to avoid the formation of oxide film);
-   inerting required during repair work on systems or equipment (e.g. welding) in order to eliminate the risk of fire or explosion.
In addition to the conditions for the actual oxygen reduction system and its individual components this European standard also covers certain structural specifications for the protected area.
The space protected by an oxygen reduction system is a controlled and continuously monitored indoor climate for extended occupation. This standard does not cover unventilated confined spaces that may contain hazardous gases.

Data collection is of prime importance in fire safety, for several reasons: assessing the effect of any regulation, providing probability and gravity data to fire risk analysis, and the selection of scenarios for examples in fire safety engineering. Statistical data collection of fires is nevertheless collected and analysed from local or national perspectives at the time of publication of this document, making any comparison difficult. A first step identified in the need for harmonization is the issue of terminology. This document defines terminology relating to fire statistical data, in order to supplement ISO 13943 for this specific field of application.

This European Technical Report applies to bucket elevators that may handle combustible products capable of producing potentially explosive atmospheres of dust or powder inside the bucket elevator during its operation. The precautions to control ignition sources will also be relevant where the product in the bucket elevator creates a fire risk but not an explosion risk.
For the purposes of this report, a bucket elevator is defined as an item of bulk material handling equipment that carries material in powder form or as coarse products such as whole grain, wood chips or flakes, in a vertical direction by means of a continuous movement of open containers.
This Technical Report specifies the principles of and guidance for fire and explosion prevention and explosion protection for bucket elevators.
Prevention is based on the avoidance of effective ignition sources, either by the elimination of ignition sources or the detection of ignition sources.
Explosion protection is based on the application of explosion venting, explosion suppression or explosion containment and explosion isolation rules specifically adapted for bucket elevators. These specific rules may be based on agreed test methods.
This European Technical Report does not apply to products that do not require atmospheric oxygen for combustion.

This draft European Standard specifies requirements and gives recommendations for the design, installation and maintenance of fixed residential fire sprinkler systems in buildings, or parts of buildings, for residential and domestic occupancies. The buildings are classified as follows:
a)   Building type 1 (the least hazardous):
1)   one or 2 family dwelling / house;
2)   single apartment in an unsprinklered building;
3)   manufactured home.
b)   Building type 2:
1)   apartments / block of flats;
2)   house with multiple households using shared facilities;
3)   care home / nursing home (excluding hospitals) / kindergarten;
4)   student accommodation.
Building type 2 is limited to buildings with up to 4 storeys above ground.
c)   Building type 3:
1)   building type 2 higher than 4 storeys and hotels up to 4 storeys.
Areas within buildings that contain hazards other than those which typically would be found in a residential occupancy are not covered by this standard and should be protected by a sprinkler system, including its water supply, designed in accordance with EN 12845. In such buildings the part that is a residential occupancy should be designed in accordance with this standard. Forms of secure accommodation such as correctional or rehabilitation facilities are not covered by this standard.
The requirements and recommendations of this standard are also applicable to any addition, extension, repair or other modification to the residential sprinkler system.
This standard covers the provision of water supplies, components to be used, installation and testing of the system, maintenance, and the extension of existing systems, and identifies construction details of buildings which are the minimum necessary for satisfactory performance of residential sprinkler systems complying with this standard.
The standard is not intended to restrict new technologies or alternative arrangements, provided that an equivalent level of safety is ensured by a third party.
This standard is intended for use by those concerned with purchasing, designing, installing, testing, inspecting, approving, operating and maintaining automatic residential sprinkler systems, in order that such equipment will function as intended throughout its life.
This standard is intended only for fixed residential fire sprinkler systems in buildings on land, and it is a basic assumption that this standard is for the use of companies employing personnel competent in the field of application with which it deals. Only trained and experienced personnel should undertake the design, installation and maintenance of residential sprinkler systems. Similarly, competent technicians should be used in the inspection and testing of the system.
This standard does not necessarily cover all legislative requirements. National requirements regarding residential occupancies are mandatory.

This Technical Specification provides guidelines for the application of automatic fire detection and fire alarm systems in and around buildings. The guideline covers planning, design, installation, commissioning, use and maintenance of the systems.
The guidelines cover systems intended for the protection of life and/or the protection of property. The guidelines cover systems with a control and indicating equipment and at least one manual call point or one fire detector. In the event of a fire the systems may be capable of providing signals to initiate the operation of ancillary equipment (such as fixed fire extinguishing systems) and other precautions and actions (such as machinery shutdown or remote transmission of alarms). These guidelines do not cover the ancillary services themselves or ancillary circuits to interface with them.
The guidelines do not cover systems combining fire alarm functions with other non-fire related functions.
The guidelines do not recommend whether or not an automatic fire detection and/or fire alarm system should be installed in any given premises.
It has been assumed in the drafting of these guidelines that they are used by appropriately competent persons. However, guidance is also given to other persons purchasing or using a fire detection and / or fire alarm system.
Smoke alarms according to EN 14604 are not fire detection and fire alarm systems.

This draft European Standard specifies requirements, test methods and performance criteria for point smoke detectors that operate using scattered light, transmitted light or ionization, intended for use in fire detection and fire alarm systems installed in and around buildings (see EN 54 1:2011).
This European standard provides for the assessment of verification of consistency of performance (AVCP) of point smoke detectors to this EN.
For other types of smoke detector, or smoke detectors working on different principles, this standard should only be used for guidance. Smoke detectors with special characteristics and developed for specific risks are not covered by this standard.
NOTE   Certain types of detector contain radioactive materials. The national requirements for radiation protection differ from country to country and they are not specified in this standard.
