    NFPA 99 Section #5.1.9.3.5

    5.1.9.3.5 Area alarm panels for medical gas systems shall provide visual and audible indication in the event a mismatch occurs between the transducer(s) and its associated circuit board(s). 

    This is a two part question.

     

    1) Is it a failure / deficiency, (when doing a certification per NFPA 99 2012 Edition) if the an area alarm, is relocated during a remodel project and it does not meet this listed code requirement?

     

    2) Is their a list from the manufactures of medical gas & vacuum area alarms, that list the model numbers or series, of their area alarms not meeting this code requirement?
