THIRD-PARTY PEER REVIEW
We undertake independent third-party peer review as a constructive process that will support the fire safety engineering design and assessment process and assist relevant stakeholders to make a sound decision about the suitability of proposed alternative solutions.
The IFEG, 2005 recommend that the peer reviewer should be involved throughout the fire engineering process and in some instances, it may also be appropriate for the peer reviewer to be involved in the inspection, testing and commissioning stages of the project. This provides assurance that the analysis has been undertaken correctly and that the alternative solution will comply with the NCC, relevant legislation, codes and standards.
We recommend peer review for large and complex projects, alternative solution relating to critical life safety feature, and difference of opinion of stakeholders on fire engineering issues.
