Launch of FPAS sees an explosion in applications for Fire Safety Assessment


Since the commencement of FPAS, there has been a significant uptick of applications for accreditation. 

As of 31 July, FPA Australia saw its biggest month with 179 new applications for FPAS FSA being submitted.

This takes the number of applicants to 1,216, with a further 758 applications still being completed:  a total of 1,974  practitioners seeking accreditation. 

Our current number of accredited practitioners in each category now stands at: 


  • 146 practitioners accredited to carry out design - 85  in detection, 81  for hydrants and hose reels, and 72  designing sprinklers; and


  • 714 practitioners accredited to perform fire safety assessment work. 


This is a strong showing of support for the professionalisation of the fire protection industry, and FPA Australia welcomes the commitment of fire practitioners to improving fire systems design and fire safety assessment.
