The Interim Fire Safety Assessor Register, provided by Fire Protection Association Australia (FPA Australia) serves as an interim tool for building owners and industry seeking competent fire safety practitioners.
As a practitioner listed on the Register, Craig has declared that he meets the minimum requirements for experience, insurance, professional conduct and commitment to future accreditation.
The FPA Australia recommends that building owners in New South Wales use individuals listed on the Register to assess essential fire safety measure performance for the purpose of Annual or Supplementary Fire Safety Statements, prior to an accreditation scheme being recognised by the NSW Government.
In July 2017 the NSW Government announced a series of building regulatory reforms, largely with respect to fire safety, which came into effect on 1 October 2017. You can learn more here.
The new Regulations require some types of fire protection work in NSW to be conducted by a ‘competent fire safety practitioner’ (CFSP), in particular, the assessment of essential fire safety measure performance for the purposes of Annual and Supplementary Fire Safety Statements.
Currently, building owners are required to satisfy themselves and state that the fire protection practitioners they engage are competent.
The FPA Australia Interim Fire Safety Assessor Register connects building owners and industry looking for assistance in preparing Annual or Supplementary Fire Safety Statements with FPA Australia Corporate members who currently do this work, and meet minimum thresholds regarding experience, insurance, professional conduct and commitment to transition to accreditation in future.
