Fire Alarm Plans and Code Requirements

Authority Having Jurisdiction

The Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) is the person or party responsible for approving an installation, the equipment or an alternative method to satisfy the requirements of the applicable code. Basically, they are a responsible party to make sure that things get done safely, and "according to code". The AHJ may vary depending upon the occupancy, and there may be more than one.

For example, a hospital will be required to be under the authority of the local fire marshal, but may also have accreditation and insurance company requirements to meet. In industry, the department of labor may well be an important AHJ.
