BS9999:2017 Annex W. 1 gives clear guidance that all fire dampers should be tested at regular intervals not exceeding 2 years and that spring operated fire dampers should be tested every 12 months and at greater frequencies if in a dust-laden environment. It is commonly accepted good practice to programme annual fire damper testing irrespective of the type of dampers within the building every 12 months as part of the buildings PPM. This is
applicable to all buildings within England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and especially important in buildings that pose a sleep risk.
