Advocacy and Technical


The FPA Australia Technical Department is responsible for development, implementation and management of the Association's strategic policy on technical issues for the fire protection industry.


The Department works in consultation with the fire protection industry and FPA Australia members and is supported by the FPA Australia Board, the National Technical Advisory Committee (NTAC), the Technical Advisory Committees (TACs), Special Interest Groups (SIGs), State & Territory Membership Groups and other relevant stakeholders.


The Department coordinates NTAC, the TACS and the SIGs, reviews technical issues, provides input to relevant documents, bodies and government departments and develops technical documents that benefit members, the industry and the community.
