If you own a multi-unit residential development, commercial or industrial building or premises, you need to submit an annual fire safety statement to your local council and Fire and Rescue NSW.

The statement certifies that the premises meets standards for essential fire safety measures.

To submit a fire safety statement, you need to:

  • organise an accredited fire safety practitioner to check each fire safety measure listed in your current fire safety schedule
  • lodge a copy of the statement (together with the current schedule) with Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) by visiting www.fire.nsw.gov.au/afsssubmission
  • send the annual statement to your local council no more than 12 months after the previous statement or final fire safety certificate
  • display a copy of the statement in the building.
