Fire alarm inspection is mandatory according to the Underwriters Laboratory of Canada (CAN-ULC-S-536-04). It is required by the competent authority ). The inspection and maintenance of fire sprinkler systems, fire pumps, and extinguishers are produced according to the standards in force by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), recognized across Canada (NFPA-10, NFPA-20, and 25).

It is important that all fire alarm system components required in your building be inspected annually, because a mechanical or electrical component of your system may become non-functional unexpectedly during the year.
