See SCDF circular on “Certification by QP for A/A Plans Involving Performance- Based Fire Safety Designs” dated 10 th October 2013 (Annex G) Future A/A 6.4 Affected Areas with PB design The scope and floor plan of the affected area(s) with PB design shall be clearly shown and demarcated from the other areas that were designed based on prescribed code requirements. Affected areas with PB design 6.5 Identification of sub-systems Identify and describe the relevant sub-systems (sequencing, critical design features) for the particular project and their interaction with each other. Some examples are: a) Fire detection b) Fire protection c) Emergency warning d) Occupant evacuation e) Smoke management f) Electromagnetic lock The above-mentioned sub-systems shall be included for inspection and maintenance as part of the process of obtaining Fire Certificate (FC) for the building. The O&M manual shall specify that the building operator is advised to inform the QP that this is a performance-based design building. Identification of sub-systems

47 6.6 Maintenance plan Commissioning, maintenance and subsequent yearly testing and inspection plans shall be developed in accordance with the minimum requirements of the relevant codes of practice and manufacturer’s guidelines. If the performance based design requires a higher level of servicing such as higher frequency of maintenance, the FSE shall highlight the additional requirements in the O&M Manual. Maintenance plan 6.7 Documentation of inspections/testing and their results shall be maintained with the building records. FSE shall include in the need to maintain inspection records. Documentation 6.8 FSEs would need to conduct a briefing to the client/end user/building operator on all performance-based issues when the Fire Engineering Report is cleared. Official letters must be submitted to SCDF from the client stating that they have been briefed by the FSE and received the O&M Manual. Client briefing 6.9 Restrictions List the restrictions placed on the building operations. These restrictions may include content in the building, building use/purpose/activity and occupancy, and reliability and maintenance of systems. For example : a) Storage height b) Storage content c) Limitation on transport vehicle in warehouse d) Commercial activity in certain parts of the building e) Activity with potential change in occupant type Restrictions 6.10 Compensatory actions Highlight compensatory actions that must be taken if a fire protection system is impaired (e.g. requires servicing or maintenance, causing it to be out of service temporarily) or removed from service. Any impairment or removal of fire protection system may be subject to total review of the fire safety systems by a FSE. Compensatory actions

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
