The fire protection concept is primarily required for special buildings such as train stations, hospitals, industrial buildings, sports facilities or hotels. in order to control the existing risks and to achieve the relevant or defined protection goals. The creation of a fire protection concept for a building is necessary if the building law requirements are to be deviated from or it is a building of a special type and use.

Fire protection certificate

A fire protection certificate is proof of compliance with the statutory fire protection requirements as well as the consideration of the additional fire protection requirements required in the fire protection concept and is therefore part of the building application to be approved by the building authority.
