BS 9263:2016 - Intruder and hold-up alarm systems – Commissioning, maintenance and remote support

When DD 263 came up for its five year review it was converted into BS 9263:2016. Like its predecessor, the new standard provides detailed advice on the commissioning and remote support of alarm systems as well as additional recommendations – not detailed in TS 50131-7 – for preventive and corrective maintenance.

Who is the standard for?

This standard will be of interest to:

Accredited companies

Companies that install I&HAS

Manufacturers who are responsible for products used to meet requirements

Alarm transmission system providers (solutions from site to alarm receiving centre)

The standard will also have an impact on alarm receiving centres which might initiate connection from centre to alarm site to carry out remote checks.

What does the standard cover?

It gives recommendations for the commissioning, on-site corrective and preventative maintenance, remote system checks and remote support of Intruder and Hold-up Alarm Systems (I&HAS).

It is intended to encompass all I&HAS under maintenance, including those installed in accordance with PD 6662 “Scheme for the application of European Standards for intruder alarm systems” and with BS 4737, component specifications for intruder alarms series, and BS EN 50131-1, general requirements for intruder systems.

NOTE: To receive police response for a remotely monitored alarm system, any systems installed after June 2012 must conform to PD6662:2010 and BS 8243.

How does the standard differ from DD 263?

Citations in the document have been refreshed, but there are no fundamental technical changes.
