The Fire Standards Board is responsible for approving Fire Standards and the approach to their development. It sets the priorities for standards development work. It commissions work based on proposals from third parties, monitors progress with ongoing work and approves completed work.
It seeks to ensure that any Fire Standards presented for approval have:
- been developed in line with the agreed development process;
- undergone appropriate consultation with subject matter experts and relevant stakeholders; and,
- undergone an independent quality assurance process.
