Why Fire Compliance Matters

Any building other than a standalone house or townhouse (class 1a) has a fire
safety obligation, with high-occupancy buildings having additional commitments
to fulfil. All fire safety compliance items, including a signed occupier’s
statements, are mandatory if the building has fire safety obligations.

Under the Building Fire Safety Regulation 2008, failing to meet the requirements:

  • Is a breach of legislated body corporate obligations
  • Leaves buildings at risk for penalties and on-the-spot fines from QFES
  • May invalidate building insurance in the event of a claim
  • May leave the body corporate liable for loss or death
