Form 3 Good Practice Guide Launch

Form 3 Good Practice Guide Launch
FPA Australia has developed a good practice guide to help practitioners to complete the Form 3 Maintenance Report.

Fire systems must be maintained so that they can perform in the event of a fire outbreak within a building.

Reporting on the maintenance of essential safety provisions (ESP) in South Australia requires the completion of a Form 3.

To assist practitioners who are completing the form, and those who rely upon it to understand how building systems are performing, FPA Australia has developed a Good Practice Guide.

This document works through the purpose and requirements of the form, what needs to be recorded, and how practitioners can comply with the regulations.

In this seminar, we will release the Good Practice Guide to the industry.
