Fire safety in buildings

We support many fire safety campaigns and are involved in strengthening fire safety certification for new and existing buildings.

We have developed the regulations for fitting fire sprinklers in all existing aged care facilities.

We have also made it mandatory to fit smoke alarms to caravans and other moveable dwellings.

Reforms to improve compliant and fire-safe buildings

The NSW Government is working to increase confidence in our building industry. Visit the Department of Customer Service page to view proposed reforms to improve building design, construction and fire safety that were exhibited in October 2022.
