An Annual Fire Safety Statement (AFSS) is a document issued by or on behalf of the owner(s) of an existing building. This is an annual statement that indicates that each fire safety measure that applies to that building has been inspected by a competent fire safety practitioner (CFSP) and that the systems perform as required. Annual Fire Safety Statements must be issued for every building other than class 1 (house), this must be done using a standard template form published by the NSW Government.
Following April 2020, only Competent Fire Safety Practitioners (CFSPs) accredited under the Fire Protection Association Australia (FPA Australia) Fire Protection Accreditation Scheme (FPAS) will be able to complete the inspection, testing and maintenance for an AFSS.

The frequency of testing for fire safety equipment is stated in AS1851-2012. This equipment must be inspected as per AS1851-2012 In order for the AFSS to be completed. Some fire safety equipment may need to be inspected monthly, while other items may only need to be inspected annually.
