Guideline Primary Visual Alarm Devices and Supplementary Indicating Devices

Since January 2014 visual alarm devices (VAD) used for warning building occupants of a fire emergency must comply with the requirements of EN 54-23 and suppliers/manufacturers of such devices must fulfil the requirements of the CPR when placing such devices on the EU market.

This has led to some confusion regarding the use of sounder beacon devices where the beacon element does not comply with EN 54-23. The use of such devices is acceptable while understanding that the beacon element must be regarded as a supplementary alarm indication and is not expected to provide a primary alarm warning signal for alerting/evacuating the occupants of the building. The manufacturer/supplier of this type of device should declare, clearly, to which EN 54 standard the sounder and/or beacon part of the device is tested and certified.
