Falcon Fire offers consultancy and assistance services to help building owners in Singapore obtain Fire Safety Certificates. We provide recommendations and guidance to comply with the necessary fire safety requirements during the application process.
Section 20 of the Fire Safety Act mandates that the owner or occupier of any public building such as offices, hospitals, shopping complexes, industrial buildings and private residential buildings must apply for and obtain the “Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF)” Fire Safety Certificate. The certificate ensures that fire safety compliance measures are met at each of these buildings so that in the event of a fire, there is no loss of life. Property owners are required to obtain the certificate before the buildings are occupied by people. In addition, a Fire Safety Certificate must be renewed every year as safety standards are subject to change. Furthermore, inspections are carried out to ensure that the fire safety measures are still in check and up to date. The certificate is only issued when the building is deemed safe.
To obtain a Fire Safety Certificate in Singapore, building owners must ensure that the properties are complete with all the necessary fire installations and safety measures and that their Fire Safety and Shelter Department (FSSD) applications meet the Singapore Civil Defence Force’s (SCDF) highest standards. However, the SCDF only allows qualified professionals or licensed engineers to apply for a Fire Safety Certificate in Singapore. There is also an extensive list of mandatory requirements and regulations which need to be met for the certificate to be issued.

The Fire Safety Act in Singapore requires all building owners to comply with fire safety regulations to ensure the safety of the occupants in the event of a fire. To adhere to the protocols, the building owner is required to submit specific documents to the SCDF when applying for a Fire Safety Certificate. The required documents include:
All documents must be submitted to the SCDF for approval before a Fire Safety Certificate can be issued. You will receive regular updates from us after submitting your application to keep you up to date, and ensure that everything is proceeding smoothly and any issues are addressed promptly. Generally, the SCDF takes about three working days to acknowledge the application. Make certain that all the documents are complete and accurate, as any inconsistencies found in the documents can result in the application being delayed or rejected.
All matters regarding Fire Safety Certificate applications are processed online, including submission of applications, and notifications of approval or rejection. This streamlined approach helps to ensure a fast and efficient process to help our clients obtain their certification within the stipulated time frame. The FSC is valid for 12 months, after which the building owner must apply for a renewal.
