Australian Standard AS 3786-2004: Smoke Alarms - Australian Government


You will be required to comply with this standard if you manufacture or design smoke alarms.

This standard applies to smoke alarms intended for installation within residential accommodation where connection to fire control stations is not required.

This standard specifies requirements for the design and performance of electrically operated smoke alarms containing both detection and alarm facilities. It allows, although it does not require, the inclusion within the smoke alarm of facilities for interconnection with other similar units, or accessories. Where such facilities are included, this standard specifies requirements for the connection interface.

Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance that may be required.
