AS 2118.1 - Automatic Fire Sprinkler Systems - Public Comment Forum

Posted on : Monday, 5 January 2015

A fully updated and revised version of AS 2118.1 - Automatic Fire Sprinkler Systems - General Systems is due to be released for public comment in early February 2015.

FPA Australia will be hosting a seminar series on the draft standard shortly after its release.

Representatives of FPA Australia's Technical Advisory Committee TAC/4/8/9 (Fire Sprinkler & Hydrants Systems, Tanks and Fixed Fire Pumps) have been assisting Standards Australia committee FP 004 with the revision of the standard.

The planned forums are aimed at informing and coordinating broad industry feedback to the Public Comment Draft of AS 2118.1 developed by Standards Australia that affects a large proportion of the fire protection industry. The forum will provide an opportunity for those in the industry, and related fields, to review the scope and details of the proposed changes and provide feedback for further consideration by FP 004 prior to its completion and release.

FPA Australia will provide a broad overview of the proposed changes and the anticipated effects and benefits to clients, the industry and the environment. The Association will also outline how comments provided to FPA Australia will be consolidated into an industry submission to Standards Australia in relation to the Public Comment Draft.

Details of the seminar will be released soon so keep an eye out for dates and locations.
