NEW SMOKE ALARM REQUIREMENTS

NEW SMOKE ALARM REQUIREMENTS
Ensure you and your family are safe, stay up to date with the latest changes to smoke alarm requirements.
Since January 2017, Queenslanders having a home built or substantially renovated have been required to have interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms installed.
From 1 January 2022, all homes being sold, leased or having their lease renewed must have hardwired photoelectric, interconnected smoke alarms installed in every bedroom, connecting hallways and on each storey.
From 1 January 2027, this requirement will apply to all homes.
As these deadlines draw near, there will be a greater demand for electrical contractors to install and upgrade ionisation smoke alarms to photoelectric smoke alarms.
Make sure you and your customers are aware of your obligations by visiting Queensland Fire and Emergency Services - smoke alarms
