An Annual Fire Safety Statement (AFSS) is a document submitted by or on behalf of the owner of a building to their Local Council. This Statement may also be required for OH&S and/or insurance purposes.
The AFSS is required on an annual anniversary date much like a vehicle is required to pass an annual inspection for registration. A fine may be issued by the Council to the owner of the property if the AFSS is not received by the Council on the proposed due date.
Note: If your Council has not requested an AFSS you may not need to submit one. However, all equipment should still be tested to ensure the safety of tenants and to ensure your insurance is not compromised.
By advising us of the due date of your Annual Fire Safety Statement, we can schedule your testing appropriately so your Statement will be ready for submission. There are a few things to keep in mind:
If your Local Council has requested an Annual Fire Safety Statement for your property or if you require Certification for OH&S and or legal purposes, contact us and we’ll arrange for a service technician to come out on site and test your equipment.
