Brisbane Stakeholders Forum

On 7 July 2018, a stakeholder forum was held in Brisbane.  The aim of the forum was to bring gaseous fire suppression system experts together to provide an overview of the licencing system, current and future directions for scheduled gases and an opportunity for attendees to ask questions.

The forum included the following topics:

  • Overview of the Fire Protection Industry Board and the licensing system
  • HFC (e.g. FM200) phase down
  • What licence do I need to ensure compliance with the legislation?
  • Modern system design techniques
  • What does the future of gas suppression systems look like?

The stakeholder forum was a success and was attended by members from the Queensland fire protection industry, facility managers and representatives from Government.  It was also an opportunity for the Fire Protection Industry (ODS & SGG) Board members to participate in conversations with industry representatives and be informed of current issues.
