Melbourne-based Fire Rating Solutions (FRS) can manage all passive fire protection requirements for any project. In order to assure their clients about the quality of their products and services they are accredited with industry association FPAA’s scheme FPAS. Fire Protection Association Australia (FPA Australia) is the national peak body for fire safety that provides information, services and education to the fire protection industry and the community.

FRS are experts in installation and/or supply of passive combustion protection products, advice, maintenance and annual audits. These passive protection requirements may vary from penetration fire sealing, PVC pipe penetration sealing, vermiculite spray, paint or audit of buildings. FRS is also able to meet certification requirements. The common examples of situations that require fire rating include penetrations through walls and floors from electrical services, PVC pipes, hot/cold water services and sprinkler pipes. Vermiculite spray and Paints for mechanical ductwork and structural steel is also a common example of when fire rating is required.

Established in 2013, the Fire Protection Accreditation Scheme (FPAS) is the only national system for recognising the skills and knowledge of individuals undertaking lifesaving fire protection work in this country. Individuals in the Scheme must sign a professional code of conduct and hold appropriate insurances.

Registering for the Fire Protection Accreditation Scheme (FPAS), means that a Corporate member who provides this type of work activity, is committing to listing all individuals engaged by the business who perform inspect and test work activity, and commits to ensure each individual listed gains FPAS accreditation

FPAA aims to have all fire services providers trained, competent and accredited by 2020. They want to influence change and deliver improved fire safety outcomes for the community. They are committed to leading and supporting a professional industry to minimise the impact of fire on life, property and the environment, for a safer community.

FPAA wants its corporate members; such has FRS, to be clearly recognised as providers of quality services; an important point of difference compared to those companies not committed to the future of the industry. With this in mind, only corporate members employing accredited technicians will in future receive additional benefits of membership such as promotion as 'providers of choice' on the Association's website.
