New Law on smoke detectors


ALL households are required to be fitted with smoke detectors by 8 March 2015.

Property owners and occupants are responsible for the installation and/or the maintenance of the detectors (DAAF : Détecteur Avertisseur de Fumée) by that date.

It should significantly reduce the unnecessary loss of life, prevent injuries and minimize damage by alerting you to a fire as early as possible.

  • it is marked with the CE notation
  • it emits a sound/alarm of at least 85 dB (A) audible at three metres
