FPAS Scheme – Extension of Commencement Date


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the NSW Government has announced the extension of the commencement date for the FPAS scheme (Accreditation of Competent Fire Safety Practitioners) to 1 July, 2020.

The extension gives industry practitioners extra time to gain FPAS accreditation that identifies them as ‘competent fire safety practitioner’ (CFSPs), before such time accreditation becomes mandatory for certain types of fire protection work in NSW.

The registers of accredited practitioners (Fire Systems Design and Fire Safety Assessment) are available online.
