The searches I found from the forum didn't conclude what I am needing to know, so hopefully people will be able to assist me.

We have just finished a domestic extension. The customer has had a large utility room added to the side of the house, along with a new kitchen & updated living room. The lights & power are fed of a sub board, so new first & second fix for these areas. There is now a hallway off the utility leading to the living room. We were asked by the builder to install a smoke detector in this hallway. We fed it off the newly installed lighting circuit. Since finishing he's had the building inspector in & they asked for a certificate for this. We certificated on the Electrical side but do not know about certificating for 1 smoke alarm off the existing light circuit?

It is not interconnected to any others. They already have other interconnected detectors on 1dt & 2nd floors. The property is a 3 storey house, not rented, a family home.

So, question is have we not complied with 5839 Pt.6? I spoke to the firebrigade. Somebody whom trains & assesses commercial premises for fire risk assessments etc. He said it doesn't cover domestic & the Fire reform order 2005 does not stipulate installation requirements. We have complied with building regs. Although NICEIC Tech line said we did need to certify??

Any suggestions?
Thanks Guys
Andy
