To date, 29 states in the U.S. have passed specific CO detector legislation, and more are considering new legislation or updates to existing laws. In addition, in 2009, NFPA 720 updated its requirements for CO detectors.
“The CO detection landscape is constantly changing, so it can be very difficult to keep up. But knowing the codes and laws can be a big advantage for our customers,” said Richard Roberts, industry affairs manager for System Sensor and Honeywell Life Safety. “So we developed tools and training to help.”
Facility managers can quickly find the details of their state’s CO laws using an interactive map on the System Sensor website. The user clicks on a state to find existing legislation and links to other important information.
