Fire Safety Certificate Applications

What is a Fire Safety Certificate?

A Fire Safety Certificate is a certificate issued by the Building Control Authority which states that the building/works to which an application relates, complies with the requirements of Part B (Fire Safety) of the Building Regulations, if built in accordance with the proposed plans and specification which were submitted.

A Fire Safety Certificate is required before works can commence on a building. If a person intends to start work on a project before a Fire Safety Certificate is granted, a 7 day notice must be lodged with the Building Control Authority.

Additionally a revised Fire Safety Certificate and a Regularisation Fire Safety Certificate can also be applied for when dealing with fire safety.

  • A revised Fire Safety Certificate can be applied for when changes are made to the original design of a building after a fire safety certificate has been granted.
  • A Regularisation Fire Safety Certificate is required where a building has been commenced or completed without a fire safety certificate being granted.
