527 CMR 1: Massachusetts Comprehensive Fire Safety Code

Amendments: New regulations require owners of single- or multi-family homes built prior to 1975 to replace expired and nonworking smoke detectors with new ones equipped with a 10-year sealed battery. Fire departments will be checking for compliance when they conduct pre-transfer inspections.

Effective Date:
December 1, 2016

Because specific requirements on smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors vary among homes based on when the home was built or permitted, it is important to check with your local building or fire department for detailed guidance. More information can also be found on the Department of Public Safety’ Smoke Alarm Regulations website: http://www.mass.gov/eopss/agencies/dfs/osfm/fire-prev/smoke-alarm-regulations.html.
