There are two standards that impact most commercial properties:
- NFPA 780 (National Fire Protection Association)
- UL 96A (Underwriters Laboratories)
Both NFPA and UL recommend yearly inspections or inspections following any modifications to the system. UL goes further and recommends a more thorough inspection and recertification every five years. UL states that five years is the period of time where it is likely that a system will be out of compliance.
