Technical Documents


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


The Department works with NTAC, TACs, SIGs and other stakeholders to - among other activities - develop technical documents that benefit members, the industry and the community.


These documents provide complementary, interpretative, educational or provocative advice for the benefit of members, industry and the community in accordance with the vision of the Association.
