The Final Decision Regulation Impact Statement (RIS), Assessment of the National Construction Code’s Fire Hose Reel requirements for (Class 5) Office buildings, has been released.

The Final Decision RIS assesses the costs and benefits of requiring fire hose reels in (Class 5) office buildings.

In February 2017 the Board agreed to replace the requirement for fire hose reels with one to install fire extinguishers in Class 5 buildings to address Class A fire risks in recognition of the lower risk and benefits to life safety outlined in the ARUP fire risk assessment.
