Occupier Statement

The legal obligation for fire compliance is with the occupier / owner or the managing entity (Body Corporate) of a building.

All fire services contractors must be appropriately licensed and provide documentation in compliance with the Building Fire Safety Regulations and AS1851-2012.

As part of the Occupier Statement all contractors are to ensure that the fire safety system performs to the standard of performance it was installed to, then endorse this on the statutory form.

The Annual Occupier’s Statement applies to building owners and tenants in all buildings – essentially if you have any prescribed fire installations it must be maintained, you must compile and lodge an Annual Occupier’s Statement with the QFES every 12 months. To do this, you must source and evaluate the service records to ensure details comply with the reporting requirements of the responsible person or entity.


Independent review by fire industry experts to confirm your commitment to fire safety compliance.

Fire Matters will conduct a comprehensive maintenance audit to ensure the obligation of the owner / occupier have been met and the occupier statement can be issued.
