PD6669 Breakfast Briefing

The briefings are taking place throughout August and September across the UK to provide security industry practitioners with information on the new PD6669 scheme.

PD6669 builds upon the existing BS EN 50136 series for alarm transmission systems by providing guidance, such as additional alarm transmission system performance categories and actions to be taken when the availability fails to meet the required levels. It also provides installation advice to improve the security and reliability of alarm transmission systems.

The briefings will take the format of a small panel of PD6669 contributors providing a summary of the content and expected use by installers and end-users, followed by a question and answer session.  

The briefings will take place at the following venues:

• London - 30th August – UBM 240 Blackfriars Rd, London SE1 8BF. Registration opens at 8.30am with presentations from 9.00am until 11.00am.
