Free PD6669 briefings

The trade body BSIA reports breakfast briefings across the UK to provide industry practitioners with details of the new PD6669 scheme.

PD6669 builds on the British Standard BS EN 50136 series for alarm transmission systems by providing guidance, such as extra alarm transmission system performance categories and actions to be taken when the availability fails to meet the required levels. It also provides installation advice to improve the security and reliability of alarm transmission systems.

The scheme has been developed by a range of industry stakeholders, including the BSIA, BSI (British Standards), the police, insurers and alarm transmission service providers. The free briefings are running in:

London – Wednesday, August 30 – UBM, 240 Blackfriars Rd, London SE1 8BF. Registration opens at 8.30am with presentations from 9am until 11am.

Hampshire – Thursday, August 31 – Southern Monitoring 212-218 London Rd, Waterlooville PO7 7AJ. Registration opens at 8.30am with presentations from 9am until 11am.

Wigan – Wednesday, September 6 – NW Fire and Security Exhibition, DW Stadium (South Stand Suite) 15 Loire Dr, Wigan WN5 0UH. Presentation 10am – 11am (as part of the NW Fire and Security Exhibition speakers).

Nottingham – Wednesday, September 13 – EMCS Ltd Tissington Cl, Beeston, Nottingham NG9 6QG. Registration opens at 8.30am with presentations from 9am until 11am.

Each morning will provide industry practitioners with an overview, information on how it interfaces to BS EN 50136 and how it will help installers by using the scheme.

Director of Technical Services, David Wilkinson, pictured, says: “PD6669 came about due to a desire from industry for clarification as to how existing standards for installing, commissioning and maintaining alarm transmission systems should be applied. This scheme provides that clarity and will be beneficial to all of those involved in the field of alarm transmission systems. The scheme has broad support from a wide range of industry stakeholders and through this series of briefings, we hope to achieve a greater understanding of its purpose and encourage adoption from industry practitioners.”
