Transition to new licence streams
The new fire protection licensing framework introduces five licensing streams:
- passive stream
- special hazard fire systems stream
- water-based fire system stream
- portables stream
- electrical stream.
While the fire safety professional licence class will continue, the scope of work has changed.
In addition, a number of components of ‘fire protection work’ are no longer regulated by the QBCC and will no longer require a QBCC licence, including emergency procedures, specified work relating to the battery-operated smoke alarms, fire blankets and alternative solutions.
The diagram below shows the new streams that existing licences will transition to under the new framework:
