NSW – HENDRY building certifiers advise that under Building Regulations, a final fire safety certificate is issued upon completion of the building works or changes of use by the owner of the building specifying that the essential fire safety measures have been properly implemented and are capable of performing to a standard not less than that required by the fire safety schedule.

The assessment of the essential fire safety measures must have been carried out within 3 months prior to the date on which the final fire safety certificate is issued. A copy of the final fire safety certificate must be forwarded to the Fire Commissioner of NSW Fire Brigades, and the owner must cause a copy of the final fire safety certificate, together with a current copy of the fire safety schedule to be prominently displayed for the occupiers in the building.
