Fire Safety

Registered Inspector

Background

With the passing of the Fire Safety Act 1993 and the Fire Safety (Registered Inspectors) Regulations 1994, an inspection certificate issued by a Registered Inspector (RI) is a prerequisite for the issuance of a Temporary Fire Permit (TFP) or a Fire Safety Certificate (FSC) for a building project. Owners are therefore required to engage RIs to inspect and certify their projects before submitting their application for a TFP / FSC to SCDF.
