For the first time in 6 years, updates have been made to BS 5839 part 6: 2019. As of April 2019, the changes apply to everyone from single families, houses in multiple occupation, self contained units and sheltered housing. Changes include

* New recommendations for fire detection in supported housing

* New recommendations on communal fire systems not to be installed

Installers working in this area would be advised to get up to date on the changes. Training courses are available, for example, the NICEIC is running a 1 day course from 4th September
