NSW Government extension for FPAS recognition

Posted on : Friday, 3 April 2020

The Secretary of the NSW Department of Customer Service has advised that the commencement date for government recognition of the Fire Protection Accreditation Scheme (FPAS) in NSW has been delayed.

The new date will be 1 July 2020. Following this date, individuals holding FPAS Fire Safety Assessment (FSA) or Fire Systems Design (FSD) accreditation will be recognised as 'competent fire safety practitioners' (CFSPs) under NSW legislation.

The reason for the extension is largely due to the impact of the coronavirus crisis, which is hampering FPA Australia's ability to process practitioners.

This will allow practitioners time to complete their application as well as allowing the Association to process applications.

For more information about the recognition of FPAS or the application process, please contact us at fpas@fpaa.com.au or (03) 8892 3131.
