LPCB offers certification of Alarm Receiving Centres to:-
- LPS 1020 Requirements for Alarm Receiving Centres
The Fire Service’s 'Model Agreement' between the Fire and Rescue authorities and users of remotely monitored fire alarm systems calls for third party certification of both the installer and the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC).
LPS 1020, when used in conjunction with BS 5979, provides the means to achieve the alarm receiving centre requirement of the model agreement. Third party certification of the installer can be achieved via the LPCB’s scheme for installers based, on the requirements of LPS 1014 Requirements for certificated fire detection and alarm systems firms.

Since the Alarm Receiving Centres must have links to the appropriate fire brigade mobilisation centres, the list includes details of the fire authority areas for which they are approved.
