Does anyone know if life safety pwr or stand-by pwr is required for a FM-200 control panel?

Thanks in advance

I would speak to the AHJ wherever the project is located. Occupancy, use group, existing required life safety power source, legally required standby source, optional source, or battery BU for panel may all be options.
