SCSO Approves Scope for New Engineering Guide on Assessments of Existing Building Fire Safety

At its February meeting, the Subcommittee for Standards Oversight (SCSO) approved the scope for a new engineering guide on assessments of existing building fire safety. The proposed guide will provide a methodology for completing an assessment of an existing facility’s current fire safety condition. The guide will describe a framework for conducting and documenting assessments that evaluate the level of fire safety. The results can be used to demonstrate if a facility provides adequate fire safety; to establish a safety baseline that supports remodeling, renovation, or repurposing plans; or to identify desired enhancements that would improve facility safety.

The scope for this new standard will go to the SFPE Board of Directors for approval. If approved, SFPE will start the process to appoint a task group that will be responsible for drafting this engineering guide. We will post a call for new members in this newsletter if this scope is approved.
