Passive First registered CFSP

Wednesday, October 11, 2017

In July 2017 the NSW Government announced a series of building regulatory reforms, largely with respect to fire safety, which came into effect on 1st October 2017. The new regulation requires some types of fire protection works be conducted by a “competent fire safety practitioner” (CFSP), in particular the assessment of essential fire safety measure performance for the purpose of annual and supplementary fire safety statements.

The FPA maintains a register of companies employing practitioners who qualify as CFSPs.

Passive First is listed listed on the FPA register and our CFSPs are competent to assess the following fire safety measures:

  • fire dampers

  • fire seals protecting openings in fire-resisting components of the building

  • lightweight construction

  • smoke dampers

  • access panels, door and hoppers to fire-resisting shafts.

What is an essential fire safety measure?

Essential fire safety measures are systems installed within a building to perform a vital function in protecting life and preventing injury in the event of fire. They are prescribed in the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation.
