FYI(STANDARD COMMENT 9) CERTIFICATE OF INSTALLATION Attached to these approved plans is the "Certificate of Installation". It is the installers responsibility to certify, through the use of this form, that the system has been properly installed and tested. The form is to be filled out in its entirety PRIOR TO THE ARRIVAL OF THE FIRE INSPECTOR conducting the final inspection and/or the acceptance test of the system. FINAL INSPECTIONS WILL NOT BE CONDUCTED WITHOUT THIS FORM BEING COMPLETED. At the time of this inspection the Fire Inspector will expect ALL devices involved in this fire alarm project to be tested. The installer should be aware of the fact that in a larger facility there may by a need to isolate the fire alarm system to only the area being tested. This testing method may be needed in such buildings as Hospitals, High Rise office buildings, and Malls to name a few. Regardless of how the fire alarm test is going to be conducted the alarm installer is to insure that building owner and/or manager and the General Contractor has been informed of the test criteria, time and date of the test, and have given their approval.
