Fire Safety

Fire Safety Statement Information

A fire safety statement is a document issued by or on behalf of the owner(s) of an existing building.

The statement confirms that an accredited practitioner (fire safety) has assessed, inspected and verified the performance of each fire safety measure that applies to the building.

There are two types of fire safety statements:

  • Annual fire safety statements

An annual fire safety statement must be issued each year and include all the essential fire safety measures that apply to a building. The statement also verifies that an accredited practitioner (fire safety) has inspected and confirmed that the exit systems in the building are in compliance with the Regulation.

  • Supplementary fire safety statements

A supplementary fire safety statement is issued at more regular intervals (as specified in the fire safety schedule) for any critical fire safety measures that apply to a building.
