Join us for our latest free webinar series to discuss the new Verification Method!

The Fire Safety Verification Method (FSVM) is a new, non-mandatory Verification Method included in NCC 2019. It is a voluntary tool, providing a documented process for the design of fire safety Performance Solutions.

In February and March, the ABCB is hosting a series of free webinars aimed at providing practitioners with further support in the use of the FSVM prior to its 1 May 2020 adoption date.

The series of webinars are intended to build on the information delivered in the FSVM webinar, held in August 2019, and designed to provide additional technical information on the application and use of the FSVM. Participants will be given the opportunity to ask questions of the panel, which will include representatives of the ABCB, industry and Australasian Fire and Emergency Service Authorities Council (AFAC).

There will be five webinars in the series, with each tailored to different practitioner groups involved in the design, development and approval process.
