I assume you are referring to the Full System Flash Copy toolkit from IBM Lab Services.
You need a small LPAR to run the backups on and after the backup is completed the QUSRBRM library is transferred back to the production system so that it thinks it was backed up locally. The backup LPAR is only active during the backup.

There is a very short quiesce of the production system when the flash copy happens so that memory can be flushed to disk before the actual flash copy happens. No jobs are ended and the system continues to run.

Subject: BRMS flash copy

I hear talk of something called BRMS flash copy.
Is this something which still requires two lpars and/or systems or can you do a flash copy, and start the backup from the flash copy?
Do you have to quisce the system during the flash copy?
