What are the regulations and when are they coming?
The MSA has always been unique in that the service of plumbed in fire suppression systems was only ever a recommendation. But this is now changing to bring them in line with the FIA recommendations. From 1st January 2019 all new vehicles will require an FIA Homologated system from the FIA technical list 16 or 52 and from 1st January 2022 all vehicles are required to be fitted with such a system. Ahead of this change, all manufacturers of MSA type systems have ceased manufacture of this type of system.What does this mean for the current MSA systems and servicing?
The good news is, as long as the system has been serviced to the manufacturer's requirements then the MSA system is compliant until 2019 for new cars or 2022 for existing cars. However, if the MSA system is outside of its service life, then it is a good opportunity to install an FIA approved system to ensure that the vehicle is futureproofed for the coming regulation change in 2019 through to 2022.What is the FIA New Homologated System and how do I know what’s right for my car?
