Fire Extinguishers

Post by vicrib » Wed Feb 14, 2018 16:47

Hi All
The MSA have changed the regulation concerning servicing of fire extinguishers used in vehicles in motorsport. They have made a mistake in the date that the new regs will start, first they told us it was Jan 2019 now it is Jan 2018 . All hand held fire ext used in motor sport will have to be tested every 2 years and have a label showing this.[At the moment NO ONE will be stopped from competing as long as the gauge shows it is ok , just get it serviced as soon as you can (notified from the MSA to scrutineers )]. Local fire ext service firms can be used for servicing hand held fire extinguishers

PLUMBED-IN FIRE EXTINGUISHERS
If you use your vehicle for other events that require a plumb in system that is FIA/MSA homologated you must get it serviced by the manufactures or their agent so the homologation is not affected .
Please contact me if you have any queries Vic
