WHO CAN CARRY OUT INSTALLATIONS AND MAINTENANCE?
Prescribed Fire Safety Installations are installations that were required to be maintained in the building in question by or under any Act, including as a perquisite to the granting of any approval or the issue of any notice, certificate or instrument (Section 104D 3(a) of the Fire and Rescue Service Act 1990).
Maintenance of prescribed fire safety installations is required to be conducted by an appropriately qualified person which is someone who holds a licence stated in the Queensland Building Services Authority Regulation 2003, schedule 2A; or stated in the Plumbing and Drainage Regulation 2003, schedule 2, items 4 to 6; or stated in the Plumbing and Drainage Regulation 2003, schedule 3, items 4 and 5. This means the person actually conducting the maintenance must have an individual licence for each class or type of fire safety installation they work on.
NOTE: – The requirements for maintenance are now contained in the Queensland Development Code MP6.1 Click here for guidelines.
Let’s get started
Unless you are refering to your house or a non habitable building/structure then you have obligations. The extent of your obligations rest in what class you are in the eyes of the local council. Your business must have a Certificate of Classification issues either by your council or a private certifier. Ask your landlord or local council for a copy as it is mandatory to have this vital piece of paper. Your Certficate of Classification shows what use your property/building has. The class might be for the entire building or an induvidual tennancy, you can not do something your class doesn’t allow.
