Building owners are required to meet certain fire safety measures and show evidence that these requirements have been met. It’s an offence if you fail to meet these requirements and penalties can apply.
Your premises may require an annual Fire Safety Statement or a Fire Safety Certificate, submitted upon completion of a new builds, if it’s been subject to:
- a building approval
- construction certificate
- complying development certificate
- fire safety schedule
- notice or order by Council after 1 July 1998.
