Fire hydrant system in new premises

FRNSW endorse the use of Australian Standard AS 2419.1-2021 in the design and installation of fire hydrant systems in new premises. If AS 2419.1-2021 is adopted in its entirety to meet performance requirement EP1.3 of the National Construction Code, instead of the referenced AS 2419.1-2005 version, FRNSW will be likely to support an exemption under section 111 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment (Development Certification and Fire Safety) Regulation 2021 or a performance solution with regards to the fire hydrant system.
