In New South Wales the fire safety systems installed within buildings are called Essential Fire Safety Measures and are an integral part of the life and safety of occupants within commercial and public buildings in the event of an emergency or fire.
Every twelve months your Annual Fire Safety Statement must be prepared and forwarded to your local Council and Fire Brigade. The Annual Fire Safety Statement must certify that a Competent Fire Safety Practitioner has inspected the building, assessed the fire safety measures, and found that the measure is capable of performing to the relevant standard.
Under the latest legislation requirements all AFSS’s issued to council must now be endorsed by a “Competent Fire Safety Practitioner” (CFSP).
