We also offer a range of services to support your FSSD submissions, such as professional consultation and advice on FSSD requirements, and the preparation of FSSD submission plans and documents to avoid unnecessary delays or complications.
FFSD stands for Fire Safety and Shelter Department. FSSD submissions in Singapore are mandatory for all commercial and residential building owners. The FSSD of the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) requires you to comply and submit plans and documents that meet the FSSD standards accurately and completely for fire safety and shelter provisions to obtain the SCDF Fire Safety Certificate.
The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) enforces a high standard of fire safety to ensure the protection of human lives and a safe haven workplace for everyone in Singapore.
According to the Fire Code in Singapore, a Fire Safety Plan (FSP) approval is required in the following cases: new buildings or structures, major building alterations or extension works, and buildings or structures that are deemed high risk. Failure to comply with the mandatory FSSD submission of the Fire Safety Plan can lead to fines, legal repercussions, or even closure of the building by the authorities.
Fire Safety Plans (FSP) in Singapore can only be submitted for approval to the Fire Safety & Shelter Department (FSSD) by qualified professionals such as registered engineers and architects. It is the responsibility of the qualified persons to ensure that the Fire Safety Plan meets the Fire Code requirements and contains adequate fire safety measures to protect the occupants of the building.
The processing time for Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) submissions may depend on the complexity and scale of the project. Generally, the SCDF takes about three working days to process and acknowledge FSSD submissions. However, for complex or large projects, the processing time may be longer. It is advisable to consult the SCDF for an estimated processing time.
