FSSD (Fire Safety and Shelter Department) Submission


According to Fire Safety Act and fire safety regulations Singapore, all office, other commercial and industrial building owners planning fire safety works are required to submit their Fire Safety Plans to the Fire Safety and Shelter Department for approval. While some may not be aware of this requirement, it is mandatory for all commercial buildings and failure to comply could result in dire consequences from the authorities. Besides, failure to submit the building’s fire safety plans for approval by the FSSD could also put your building and its users at greater risks during fire emergencies.

One of the essentials of FSSD submissions that you should know is that they can only be prepared by Qualified Persons who are licensed architects or engineers in Singapore. Getting the approval from the authorities usually takes time and could significantly affect your schedule if you are not familiar with the procedures. Besides, if the fire safety renovations do not meet the FSSD guidelines and standards, you could even end up re-doing the entire project, costing more money and time.
