Scope: <p>This part of <std std-id="iso:std:iso:7240:en" type="undated"><std-ref>ISO 7240</std-ref></std> specifies the requirements, test methods and performance criteria for sound system control and indicating equipment (s.s.c.i.e.) for use in buildings and structures as part of a sound system for emergency purposes (s.s.e.p.) (<std>item C of Figure 2 in <std-ref>ISO 7240-1:2005</std-ref></std>). The s.s.c.i.e. is primarily intended to broadcast information for the protection of lives within one or more specified areas in an emergency, to effect a rapid and orderly mobilization of occupants in an indoor or outdoor area. This includes systems using loudspeakers to broadcast voice announcements for emergency purposes, alert signals complying with <std std-id="iso:std:iso:7731:en" type="undated"><std-ref>ISO 7731</std-ref></std>, and evacuate signals complying with <std std-id="iso:std:iso:8201:en" type="undated"><std-ref>ISO 8201</std-ref></std>.</p><p>The overall requirements of an s.s.e.p., especially concerning audibility and intelligibility, are contained within <std std-id="iso:std:iso:7240:-19:en" type="undated"><std-ref>ISO 7240-19</std-ref></std>. In addition to ensuring compliance with this part of <std std-id="iso:std:iso:7240:en" type="undated"><std-ref>ISO 7240</std-ref></std>, the manufacturer should also consider the requirements of <std std-id="iso:std:iso:7240:-19:en" type="undated"><std-ref>ISO 7240-19</std-ref></std>, national regulations, codes and standards that affect the s.s.c.i.e. design and usability. For example, some regulations require certain optional functions to be available on all s.s.c.i.e. installed within the jurisdiction.</p><p>The use of the equipment for normal sound reinforcement and distribution systems purposes under non-hazardous circumstances is not excluded.</p><p>This part of <std std-id="iso:std:iso:7240:en" type="undated"><std-ref>ISO 7240</std-ref></std> can also be used for the assessment of similar control and indicating equipment for use in systems where the warning-signal broadcast does not include a voice message.</p><p>This part of <std std-id="iso:std:iso:7240:en" type="undated"><std-ref>ISO 7240</std-ref></std> does not apply to systems using only sounders or bells.</p>
