What is a Fire Safety Certificate?

A Fire Safety Certificate (not to be confused with an Annual Fire Safety Statement) contains details of an assessment of the fire safety measures in a commercial/ industrial building. It is required to be lodged with the certifying authority and the Commissioner, Fire and Rescue NSW by the owner of the building or the owner's agent: 

  • Before an occupation certificate can be issued to allow a building (including an altered portion of, or extension to, a new building) to be occupied or used, or
  • Before an occupation certificate can be issued to allow a change of building use for an existing building, or
  • In accordance with a fire safety order given by Council.
