The CERT Scheme was expanded to include a broader group of Public and Industrial premises with the amendments to the Fire Safety Act on 01 September 2013 and 01 March 2014.
Under the scheme, the owner of premise is to ensure that the CERT members undergo specific training and periodic assessments as the Commissioner may specify; and;
- if the CERT fails any periodic assessment referred to in sub‑paragraph (d), take reasonable steps to ensure that the CERT passes such periodic assessment within such period as the Commissioner may require.
Any owner or occupier of specified premises who contravenes paragraph (1) shall be guilty of an offence and shall be liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding $10,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 6 months or to both.
The periodic assessments for the CERT compliance is based on the authority’s CERT audit guidelines:
FMO offers periodic assessment service to assist premise owners to conduct due-diligence check to ensure full compliance with the regulatory requirement.
