On 21st June 2019 the Emergencies Act 2004 was amended to clarify the standards to which fire safety systems in Territory commercial buildings must be maintained. If you own or manage a commercial building ACTF&R recommends that you contact your fire services provider to ensure compliance with the new requirements.
