The International Fire Engineering Guidelines (IFEG) was developed and made available for use in Australia, Canada, USA and New Zealand. As a guideline, referencing both national and international standards, guides and associated documents, the IFEG provides an insight to the issues that go beyond actual fire engineering, while also providing a perspective on the role of the fire engineering within the regulatory and non-regulatory systems for a particular country. The IFEG is a essential reference for anyone involved in the development of peformance solutions for fire engineered designs.
