Passive fire protection is rarely understood and often non-compliant.  

Poor preparation can lead to systems that do not work as intended, and do not meet the required fire safety standards. 

This webinar will use a recent case study to explore passive fire protection from design to handover taking into account the following:


  • Planning, design and document review
  • system selection and finding evidence
  • Installation guides
  • Inspection protocols
  • Defect management
  • Evidence & documentation
  • Installation certificates

In particular, the presentation will emphasise the need to plan, to understand the designs, to follow installation guides and manufacturers' specifications, and to maintain comprehensive documentation. 

It will also examine inspection protocols and identify how to manage and address any identified defects.

The final phase of South Australia's Planning and Design Code (the Code) commenced in all urban areas on 19 March, 2021.  


This means that Form 3 of the Code - covering essential safety provisions (ESPs) - is now fully operational in all areas of the state.  


This form records that a building's ESPs have been maintained and tested in accordance with relevant maintenance standards and confirms their current performance.  


This webinar will discuss the Code and its implications, and walk through the use of Form 3.
