The SCDF provides for the issuance of a temporary fire permit to building owners to use for a limited period of time before acquiring a fire safety certificate. However, there are also strict conditions for the issuance of the permit that every building owner must adhere to. Foremost, the permit can only be awarded if the fire safety renovations on the building have been satisfactorily completed. While some minor works may still be pending, the majority of the works must be completed to apply for a temporary fire permit.
The duration for using the permit usually varies depending on the size of the project, particular fire safety works conducted on the building and the complexity of the tasks. However, FSSD usually grants the permit for a maximum of 6 months.
