Plan Assessment

Building Regulations 2012 r.18B(1) states that “at least 15 business days before signing a certificate of design compliance in respect of a Class 2 to Class 9 building, a building surveyor must provide to the FES Commissioner plans and specifications for the building in sufficient detail to allow assessment of compliance with the FES Commissioner’s operational requirements.”

DFES has published the FES Commissioner’s Operational Requirements. Further information can be found on the Publications/Guidelines page.

Before submitting an application to DFES, please refer to GL-07 Submission of Documents to DFES for Assessment.

Note: To avoid unnecessary delays with the assessment, all relevant fields in the electronic lodgement form are required to be completed to ensure sufficient information has been supplied to DFES.
