The Building Fire Safety Regulation 2008 (BFSR) applies to, and refers to, a building as defined by the Fire and Rescue Service Act 1990, section 104A.


Building means a fixed structure that is wholly or partly enclosed by walls and is roofed and includes

a floating building and any part of a building but does not include— (a) a single dwelling house, being either a detached dwelling house or a town, terrace, row, villa or like house attached to another such house or other such houses only by a wall on 2 or more of its sides;


Due to different interpretations by some local authorities prior to the introduction of the Building Code of Australia (BCA) on 1 January 1992 some structures, detailed in part (a) of the above definition, may have current approval documents identifying them as Class 2 buildings. Since the introduction of the BCA these buildings have been classified as Class 1a and therefore are exempt from the requirements of the BFSR.


High occupancy building means any of the following buildings, other than a building to which section 32 applies—

(a) a class 2 or 3 building more than 25m high;

(b) a class 2, 3, 5, 6, 7b, 8, 9a, or 9b building that is a workplace—

(i) prescribed under the Workplace Health and Safety Regulation 2008, section 56; and

(ii) where 30 or more workers are normally employed within the meaning of the Workplace Health and

Safety Act 1995, section 93(5);

 (c) a class 6 or 9b building that the commissioner has decided is an at risk licensed building under section 104KD of the Fire Service Act.
