PD 6662:2017

Scheme for the application of European Standards for intrusion and hold-up alarm systems

Status : Current   Published : August 2017



What is this Published Document about?

A ‘fit for purpose’ intruder and hold-up alarm system (I&HASs) will comprise several components, including the right equipment, the right system design, and the right installation and maintenance regimes.

PD 6662 provides a ‘scheme’ describing how an I&HAS should be assembled with reference to the relevant British and European standards, technical specifications and Drafts for Development that specify different components of the I&HAS. 

The PD also gives guidance on how the standards should be applied in an ‘integrated scheme’ which is one that integrates the I&HAS with another system, e.g. access control, fire detection, building management or a home automation system. 

Who is this Published Document for?

  • Purchasers and specifiers of I&HAS in any sector
  • Manufacturers
  • Consultants
  • Designers
  • Installers and maintainers of I&HAS

Why should you use this Published Document?

Anyone going to the cost and trouble of installing an intruder or hold-up alarm system wants one that is fit for purpose and meets both their needs and that of their insurance company.  PD 6662 helps ensure that systems are rigorous.

In addition, only systems that are PD 6662 aligned and monitored are eligible to receive a Police Unique Reference Number, which is a prerequisite for systems requiring a police response when an alarm is triggered.

What’s changed since the last update?

The PD has been updated to take into account changes to the British and European standards that it references.
