Routine Maintenance is an essential component to your fire equipment life. Your equipment must be inspected, tagged and tested in accordance with Australian Standards AS1851, AS2293 and the like in order to perform to its minimum standard of performance.
Routine Maintenance schedules are usually either 1, 3, 6 or 12 monthly depending on the measures installed in your building.
Routine Maintenance intervals are stipulated in each of Australian Standards publications.
These schedules must also be adhered to in order to issue certification of any fire safety system. 
Other maintenance or verification methods may be applied to certain fire safety measures such as the Building Codes of Australia.
