evacuation alert systems audit
DEKRA Audit Netherlands

Do you supply or install reliable, high-quality evacuation alert systems?

Evacuation Alert System Certification

In the event of an emergency, such as a fire, it’s essential that all the people in a building can be brought to safety quickly and efficiently. A professionally-installed evacuation alarm system (OAI) is then vital. We take care of your certification for the delivery, installation and maintenance of mandatory evacuation alarm systems

NEN 2575 and 2654-2

The requirements for an OAI are included in the Dutch NEN 2575 standard (design, supply and installation) and 2654-2 (maintenance). To demonstrate compliance with these requirements, the CCV has incorporated verification agreements in CCV certification schemes. With OAI certification, you demonstrate that you meet all the requirements in the CCV OAI scheme.The NEN 2675 standard prescribes, among other things:
  • How and where signallers should be mounted to be audible and intelligible.
  • How and where to measure the audibility and intelligibility of sound.
  • That building users are responsible for proper management, regular monitoring and timely maintenance.

CCV certification schemes

In order to demonstrate that these requirements are met, the CCV has included agreements about inspections in CCV certification schemes:
  • Evacuation alarm systems type A, B and silent alarm (wireless). The criteria are based on NEN 2575.
  • Installing evacuation alarm systems, based on NEN 2575.
  • Maintenance of evacuation alarm systems, in accordance with NEN 2654-2.
With OAI certification you demonstrate that you meet all the regulations in the CCV's OAI scheme.
