The National Fire Protection Association’s Standard # 25 for inspections, testing and maintenance of a fire sprinkler system was adopted by New York City in 2012. The requirements of NFPA 25 are relevant to all city buildings that are sprinklered, including plenty that were previously exempt and now must comply.

FDNY Enforcement of Fire Sprinkler Regulations:
All sprinklered facilities throughout Manhattan, whether it be commercial or residential, are required to have the inspection regimen of NFPA25 performed by a licensed Master Fire sprinkler inspector and holder of an FDNY Certificate of Fitness.
NFPA 25 is designed to standardize, clarify and enhance the types and frequency of required fire sprinkler inspections. Various categories of inspections and maintenance must be performed at regular intervals ranging from weekly visual checks to monthly, quarterly and a thorough annual Internal Obstruction Inspection every 5 years.

We’re here to help you understand and fully comply with all FDNY inspection requirements. There are four basic levels of Fire Sprinkler inspections in Manhattan: Each frequency of inspection has different requirements, but all are mandatory according to NFPA 25, and accurate records of all inspections are required:
NFPA 25 has numerous points for weekly visual inspection. It expects building occupants or owners to perform these weekly inspections. This may also require a weekly fire pump churn test, if applicable. You can perform the weekly visual inspections yourself, or we can perform them for you. Maintaining records of these inspections can significantly help you if you receive a violation. We maintain all records of every fire sprinkler inspection in NYC and the surrounding areas, and can provide both hard copies and digital records upon request by the FDNY.
Monthly inspections standardized by NFPA 25 are more in depth than the weekly regimen and we maintain all records of these on file to comply with FDNY requirements. In addition to the weekly inspection regimen, the monthly inspection includes, but is not limited to the visual inspection of the following components:
Quarterly tests and inspections standardized by NFPA 25 include the monthly visual inspection(s) identified above as well as a much more detailed visual and hands-on testing regimen. The quarterly fire sprinkler inspection also includes confirming adequate pressure readings and testing water flow and tamper switches. Post indicating valves and priming levels must also be tested and drain tests for backflow devices need to be performed. The fire sprinkler riser will also be inspected to ensure that the hydraulic nameplate, if applicable, is attached and legible.
Annual tests and inspections standardized by NFPA 25 include the monthly and quarterly regiment identified above but has a few additional requirements. All components of the system(s) are visually inspected, potential obstructions are identified, and an assessment is made to determine if the requirements of the system have changed. Each sprinkler control valve is tested, pumps are operated and water flow is measured. Every 5th year, an Internal Obstruction Assessment is to be performed during the annual test.
