FIA has just published Fact File 14 that is addressing the topic of Ionisation Chamber Smoke Detectors & The Carriage of Dangerous Goods & Use of Transportable Pressure Equipment Regulations 2009. Statutory Instrument 2009 No. 1348, The Carriage of Dangerous Goods and Use of Transportable Pressure Equipment Regulations 2009 (CDG09) came into force on 1st July 2009. The introduction of the 2009 Regulations revokes the 2007 Regulations which revoked the 2004 Regulations and The Radioactive Material (Road Transport) Regulations 2002.
The regulations covered by CDG09 affect many FIA members who either manufacture or use ionisation chamber smoke detectors (ICSDs). In order to raise awareness of the changes and the implications that the new regulations have on the way that companies operate their businesses, this document summarises the key requirements that apply to the Fire Detection and Alarm Industry and what companies have to do to comply with the requirements for packaging ICSDs and transporting them.
