Fire Alarm System Inspection and Test Plan Points

H: Hold Point implies that relevant production activities shall not proceed until the continuation of work is permitted by Purchaser. (Notification req'd)

The vendor must notify the purchaser 7 days in advance. Then the purchaser will approve the notification and will send to the TPI inspector. TPI inspector will be attend in vendor shop to witness the related test.

W: Witness point implies that Purchaser intends to witness the designated inspection feature. If Purchaser decides not to witness the relevant feature, production can proceed without permission of Purchaser. (Notification req'd)

R: Review inspection & test records (Notification not req'd)

This ITP is prepared for direct order to the fire alarm system vendor. If you have purchased your fire alarm system from a supplier or you have purchased a system that has been already manufactured, then there will not be a chance for witnessing the tests.

In this case, the TPI inspector must precisely check the quality control and test records.

In addition you must add 3 more columns in above ITP. One for reference construction standard or vendor specification, second one for identifying of the acceptance criteria and third one for verifying document.

The acceptance criteria must be based of requirements of construction code. The verifying document are test procedures, material certificates, test records, packing list, etc.
