Technical enquiries

We are not able to respond to technical queries about the content of a standard. This is outside our legislated purpose, responsibility, and area of expertise. We are also unable to comment on the application or interpretation of standards, as this is handled by technical industry experts. If a standard is cited in legislation, the applicable regulator may undertake these activities.

An exception to this is a permanent technical advisory group that has been established to provide interpretations on fire protection standards. Please see our fire formal interpretations page via the link below for more information.
