FPA Australia administers the Bushfire Planning and Design
(BPAD) Accreditation Scheme. The Scheme accredits consultants who
offer bushfire assessment, planning, design and advice
services. It accredits practitioners who meet criteria based
on specific accreditation and competency requirements, including a
detailed knowledge of the relevant planning, development and
building legislation for each State and Territory.
Through the Accreditation Scheme, BPAD Accredited Practitioners
are recognised by industry, regulators, fire agencies, end-users
and the community as providers of professional bushfire assessment,
planning, design and advice services.
The Scheme provides an enhanced level of confidence for
government and the community that practitioners are accredited by a
suitably robust scheme that is administered by the peak national
body for fire safety.
