Fire Certificate Renewal

When constructing or moving into a new building, obtaining a Fire Certificate (FC) is mandatory in order to ensure that all fire safety measures and systems in place are tested in accordance to Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) Fire Code.

As your one-stop service centre, our team of dedicated professionals can assist you with the FC application process, from conducting FC tests of all fire safety measures and systems by our Professional Engineers (PEs) to the issuance of inspection forms. With our wealth of experience, J.Keart ensures that all your FC prerequisites are met. Our inclusive services involves:

  1. Receipt of FC renewal notice from SCDF
  2. Detachment of PE to conduct full FC inspection on all fire safety measures and systems
  3. Issuance of the necessary endorsed forms by PE if all systems are in good working condition
  4. Submission of forms to SCDF
  5. Renewal of FC when required

FC inspection procedures

Stage 1

Fire protection systems are activated under simulated fire alarm conditions. This is to ensure that the fire protection system will work efficiently during real-time fires.

Stage 2

Fire protection systems are activated during a simulated power failure. This is to ensure that the secondary power supply by generator will provide the necessary back-up power for the efficient operation of the fire protection system.

The operability of all fire protection measures in your building are tested, including:

  • Emergency power supply
  • Sprinkler system
  • Fire alarm system
  • Wet and Dry riser
  • Pressurisation system
  • Atrium smoke control system
  • Mechanical ventilation for basement
