Tags and Reports for Fire Tests and Inspections Guideline

Fire Protection

The RFPT will conduct the required inspections and or tests and immediately record on a new tag the condition of the fire protection systems or equipment compared to the intended functionality as established by the manufacturer and/or applicable bylaws, codes and standards. The RFPT will punch or check off the front of the tag to indicate whether the system or equipment has no deficiencies, and is considered a PASS or if deficiencies are found it is considered a FAIL.

PASS: when the fire protection system or equipment is determined to be in operating condition to function as intended the RFPT shall punch or check the column on the new tag in the row for the appropriate system or equipment and column indicating PASS to specify there were no deficiencies when inspected and tested.

FAIL: When the fire protection system or equipment is determined to have deficiencies the RFPT shall punch or check a new tag in the row for the appropriate system or equipment and column indicating FAIL. The RFPT shall deface the tag by placing a large, broad-width (preferably red) “X” across the front and back of the tag. The RFPT shall enter in the inspection/test log the deficiencies and the action required to return the system or equipment to a state of no deficiencies. The RFPT shall immediately notify verbally and in writing the building owner or manager and the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) that the system or equipment has deficiencies resulting in the FAIL rating.

The completed inspection log and report shall be immediately provided to the owner or manager and to the AHJ.

SECURING THE TAG

The tag is to be secured to the unit being inspected, tested and/or maintained in a manner that would not be considered a hazard. When secured, the tag shall be visible and easy to read.
