Competitor Guidance - Fire Extinguisher Regulations

The MSA have published Competitor Guidance to clarify the changes in extinguisher regulations, as referred to in our February Update posting.

The very short version is that existing non-homologated extinguishers must be serviced every 24 months, or sooner if specified by the manufacturer, but there is more to it than that if you have FIA homologated extinguishers, and you will all need FIA extinguishers by 2021.

You can find the full guidance document with other scrutineering documents on the Scottish Association website
