Introduction

Electronic system integration brings added value through sharing of common resources, adding new

functionality or enabling automated command and control functionalities for faster accurate responses.

This European Standard describes the general requirements and configuration types for combined

and integrated electronic systems, which should apply when one or more of the applications being

integrated is an alarm application. Applications that should be integrated have as a prerequisite that

they are capable of being interoperable at a specified system, sub system or component level.

The prime considerations of this European Standard are to ensure that the individual alarm standards,

requirements or guidelines are applied when alarm applications form part of an integrated system. The

requirements of this document are in addition to application specific system standards. Application

specific system standards take precedence over requirements detailed in this document.

In addition to sharing means of control or communication, the implementation of integration between

systems, as described in this document, may provide additional services to the user.

In this document, the wording 'combined and integrated alarm system' is synonymous with 'integrated

alarm system', which will mostly be used in the document.

NOTE The bibliography for this document has a non exhaustive list of alarm application standards.

4 General description and fundamental principles
4.1 General

Integrated alarm systems require careful consideration of many factors in order for the end result to be

fit for purpose. This standard describes the elements that make up the planning, design, installation,

commissioning, system verification, handover and maintenance of an integrated alarm system.

4.2 Standards

For integrated alarm systems the standards relevant to each application shall apply. The integrated

alarm system shall not compromise those requirements.

Common facilities shall comply with all application standards for which they are standard-required. The

most severe integrity requirement of each of the standards shall apply.
---------------------- Page: 10 ----------------------
SIST EN 50398-1:2017
EN 50398-1:2017 (E)

NOTE This includes Alarm Transmission System requirements when they form part of a common facility.

The common facilities not covered by the application standards shall meet the requirements of this

European Standard.
Dedicated facilities shall comply with the relevant application standards.
4.3 Contractual responsibility

An integrated alarm system will include more than one application and is likely to include some level of

application interactivity. In order to assist the successful resolution of any difficulties associated with

the delivery of the specified interactivity, an overall responsible person shall be appointed. This

responsible person shall be responsible for delivering the complete integrated alarm system to the

customer and providing a Declaration of Performance against the system specification.

If deviations from the specification have been agreed with the relevant parties, the responsible person

shall provide a statement of these deviations.

The responsible person associated with the project should ensure that the person undertaking the

design has the relevant expertise to effectively accomplish the process.
NOTE The responsible person can be a natural or legal person.
4.4 Stages of work
4.4.1 General

An integrated alarm system responsible person shall, at a minimum, step through the following stages

of work.
4.4.2 Planning

A risk assessment shall be undertaken as part of the planning stage. It is critical to ensure that the

objectives of the integrated alarm system are met.

A system specification shall be produced. The detail included within the specification shall reflect the

complexity of the system and should include information on at least the following aspects:

— the individual applications and their desired performance requirements;
— the objectives to be achieved by the integration;

— the characteristics of the site(s) into which the integrated alarm system is to be installed;

— the appropriate integrity type (see 4.5) for each common facility as determined by the risk

assessment;

— where a CCF is included, then its classification as defined in 5.13.1 shall be determined by the

risk assessment;

— consideration should be given as to whether or not a factory acceptance test and/or a site

acceptance test is required.
4.4.3 Design

Based on the risk assessment, the integrity type for each common facility (see 4.5) shall be fixed.

Documentation for cause and effect shall be produced to detail the interaction between applications to

be configured within the integrated alarm system.

Particular attention shall be given to the consequential effect(s) of the failure of a common facility. If

required by the risk assessment, a mitigating methodology shall be applied.
