Free BS 5839 Part 6 Update Workshop – do you know the changes?

The British Standards Institution’s recent update of the domestic fire detection and alarm system standard, specifically Part 6 of BS 5839, outlines the code of practice for the design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of fire detection and fire alarm systems in domestic properties. You may be using this as your installation guide, to ensure that you fit to the government recommendations, so it is important to know about these changes.



This will be an open forum for discussion with AICO at the CHIC offices on Thursday 31st October about the new updates.

  • To share an overview of the BS5839-6:2019
  • Share best practice on how HA/LA’s are intending to implement the Part 6 updates
  • Potentially continue to meet as a group

To book your place, please send and email by 25th October to Curtis Coulson at
