New Victorian routine service forms incorporate industry feedback

Posted on : Monday, 16 September 2019

The Victorian Government has introduced an updated Annual Essential Safety Measures (AESM) Report and Maintenance Schedule form for routine service of fire protection systems.


The new forms were officially gazetted on Thursday 12 September 2019, and the Victorian Building Authority (VBA) has now made them available on its website.


Updates to the forms were made in response to feedback from Fire Protection Association Australia (FPA Australia), with the assistance of its members. The changes are focused on practical usability improvements to the forms to better align them with regulatory objectives and the operational requirements of the industry.


The updated forms replace those introduced in Victoria last year with the Building Regulations 2018.
