Fire suppression systems in engine compartments of buses and coaches

These certification rules set out the rules for certification of fully automatic fire suppression systems in engine compartments of buses and coaches.

The technical requirements are based on internationally accepted standards. Certification is performed by SP Certification. 

Continuous inspection involves inspection by the manufacturer and surveillance inspection by SP.  Surveillance inspection is carried out through visits to the manufacturer, and involves assessment of the manufacturer's FPC. In addition, samples of the finished products may be taken for testing in order to verify that the manufacturer's FPC is operating as intended. 

The certification rules are based on current standards, but may be revised in future, e.g. to harmonize them with future European or international standards.  Revision may also be necessary if new regulations are introduced or if a need for such revision is shown by the results of experience of application of the rules.  If clarification or complementation of the rules becomes necessary, an appropriate PM document will be issued, and will also be incorporated in future issues of the rules.
