a.

This includes maintenance regimes, evacuation procedures, and other relevant documents to be kept and maintained by the relevant parties.
b. The building owner shall maintain and keep the Fire Safety Instruction Manual at all times and present to the QP upon request. Where any Addition &Alteration works are carried out to the buildings, the building owner shall ensure that changes in the management of fire safety provisions are updated in the Fire Safety Instruction Manual by the QP. The updated Fire Safety Instruction Manual shall be submitted to SCDF for record.
c. The QP can expand or modify the Fire Safety Instruction Manual to suit his presentation so as to convey the fire safety intents/requirements to the relevant parties.
