Comply with new NFPA 110: Standard for Emergency and Standby Power Systems to minimize the risk of system failure and protect lives.
Readiness of emergency power in the case of disruption of the normal utility supply is a vital consideration in safeguarding building occupants. Yet, poor installation planning and maintenance practices are all common causes of Emergency Power Supply Systems (EPSS) failure. That's why the latest edition of NFPA 110: Standard for Emergency and Standby Power Systems is essential for confident and correct system installation, testing, and maintenance.
In addition to improving occupant safety, NFPA 110 compliance saves money by extending the life of the system through proper care. Comprehensive coverage in the Standard addresses:
- Power sources
- Transfer equipment
- Supervisory equipment
- Related electrical and mechanical auxiliary and accessory equipment needed to supply electrical power to the load terminals of the transfer equipment

The 2016 edition of NFPA 110 has the latest coverage for designers, engineers, contractors, installers, and facility managers of any building that requires a backup generator or similar emergency system according to NFPA 101®: Life Safety Code® or another code. In a significant change, the 2016 NFPA 110 adds new verification tests and maintenance for paralleling gear that requires the entire system be tested to ensure the paralleling gear functions as intended.
