Mass Notification Standards Coming to Canada Soon

Voice Evacuation & MNS

In 2010, the United States updated existing NFPA-72 codes to include mass communication requirements. The code was updated to address the need to respond to more than just fire related emergencies. The new codes address specific needs of the control apparatus, communication protocols, methods of data exchange and accessories.

The current US standard, UL-2572, will be adopted in Canada in the near future, Look for this in the next Building Code release in 2023.
