Licensing Requirements in Minnesota

SECTION 3 — DETECTION AND ALARM SYSTEMS
3.1 Frequency of inspection
It is the policy of the State Fire Marshal Division that detection and alarm systems shall be tested at least annually [MUFC (98) Section 1001.4 and MUFC (98) Section 1001.5.2]. Fully addressable/intelligent fire alarm systems still require testing and inspection on an annual basis since there are maintenance items that are required that can not be monitored by the alarm system (visual inspection, obstructions near detectors, cleaning of detectors).
3.2 How the inspection is to be conducted The annual inspection and testing of alarm systems shall follow, at a minimum, Chapter 7 of MUFC (98) Standard 10-2 (NFPA 72 1993 edition, as amended). Procedures with a frequency less than yearly shall also be completed during the annual inspection and testing. The owner shall provide for proper testing and maintenance of the system. Individuals performing testing and maintenance shall be qualified and knowledgeable in the equipment operation and test procedures of installed systems. Examples of qualified personnel include the following [MUFC (98) Standard 10-2]:
a. Factory trained and certified,
b. National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET) certified in fire alarm systems,
c. International Municipal Signaling Association Fire Alarm certified
d. Trained and qualified personnel employed by an organization listed by a national testing laboratory for the servicing of fire alarm systems.
