The Code of Practice for Connected Systems Integration in Buildings aims to promote good practice in the specification, design and integration of connected systems in buildings, as well as providing a reference to practitioners on design, integration practice and technological considerations working to meet key functionality and customer requirements.
This authoritative and timely document has been developed by a working group of technical experts and end-users responsible for the management, specification and procurement of the exterior lighting systems market.
This Code of Practice is designed to help companies assess and maintain the competence of their engineering staff, particularly in safety-critical areas and industries. It sets out the competencies expected and evidence required to prove competence in specific tasks and helps organisations create schemes for monitoring and measuring the competencies of its employees. Human error is still recognised as the most frequent cause of problems and the field of safety-critical systems/functional safety continues to develop along with the complexity of systems.
This code of practice on Electromagnetic Resilience covers risk management of electromagnetic interference (EMI) for safety-related systems.
It describes a recommended process for supporting functional safety with respect to electromagnetic disturbances over a complete system lifecycle, and specifically provides a range of techniques and measures for application during the following lifecycle stages:
- System design
- Operational design
- Verification and validation
- Maintenance, repair, refurbishment, upgrade
- Dismantling and disposal
This Code of Practice has been developed to provide confidence to users as a minimum standard for LED lighting systems installation, as well as to serve as a useful reference on the application of LED lighting systems.
