Declaration of updated alternative solution report
Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) are no longer accepting any Declaration of updated alternative solution report. The alternative solution report version attached to the fire safety schedule is to be provided by the principal certifying authority (PCA) when applying for the Final fire safety report.
FRNSW expects any updated ASR versions attached to the fire safety schedule to be approriately determined by a certifying authority for the corresponding construction certificate (CC) issued. Clause 148 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000 (EP&A Reg.) requires any design change that warrants modification of the CC to undergo a new CC application process.
Note: Any changes to the ASR that were not appropriately determined by the certifying authority, including non-referral to FRNSW for an initial fire safety report under clause 144 of the EP&A Reg., may be referred to the relevant authority for enforcement action.
