Those undertaking a construction project must ensure the building designed meets the essential structural requirements, including fire safety requirements.
They must appoint for the construction project a principal designer as well as qualified designers for each sub-area as required by the scope of the project. The designer sets the requirements for the system to be created on the basis of the assignment data provided by the developer. The intended use of the building and the properties of the system selected must be taken into consideration in design and dimensioning, also taking the requirements set for construction by authorities supervising construction into consideration. The requirements set for fire alarm system construction and any selection of equipment must be included by the designer in the implementation record drawn up on the system, which must always be submitted to the local rescue authority overseeing the construction. The rescue authority may also place further requirements on the fire alarm system to be created.
