Content

To facilitate business operation and optimize the use of professional and qualified human resources in the market, the Fire Services Department proposed to introduce a third-party fire safety certification scheme, namely Registered Fire Engineer ("RFE") Scheme. Under the Scheme, RFEs will be allowed to provide fire risk assessment and certification services, which are currently only offered by the FSD.

With the benefit of comments received from the Bills Committee and from various stakeholders in previous consultations, a Code of Practice ("the Code") has been drafted for the purpose of providing practical guidance to RFEs on assessing fire risk, formulating fire safety requirements, conducting compliance inspection or testing, and issuing fire safety certificate. The Code has been uploaded to the FSD webpage (https://www.hkfsd.gov.hk/eng/fire_protection/rfes/) for the purpose of trade consultation scheduled for 22.12.2023 to 31.3.2024.

As Building Surveyor is one of the key stakeholders of the Scheme, FSD is invited by the BSD to come conducting a briefing session for BSD members to explain the latest development of the scheme and the proposed frameworks so that BSD members could offer our views within the Consultation Period.
