Does Passive Fire Protection need to be maintained?

Changes can take place throughout the life of a building, including the components of passive fire protection.
Passive fire protection doesn’t sound an alarm or spray water from sprinkler systems but it still needs to be maintained. It is essential to inspect, maintain and undertake corrective actions on all passive fire protection systems to maximize it’s reliability and to ensure it continues to meet the requirements of the relevant design, installation and commissioning procedures until the next inspection.
Any defects must be remedied as soon as possible, with provisional measures put in place to compensate in the meantime as the fire safety in the building will be reduced until the defect is rectified.
