Should your asset be protected by an agent listed?
From the FPAA:
"’Scheduled’ fire protection industry extinguishing agents are those listed in Schedule 1 of the Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Act 1989. If your site poses ‘scheduled’ extinguishing agents, by law, those servicing such a system are required to hold an appropriate Extinguishing Agent Handling Licence (EAHL). Individuals who handle or work with any fire protection equipment, where such activities may cause an emission of scheduled ODS and SGG extinguishing agents (including Halon), must hold an extinguishing agent handling licence (EAHL). Refer our listing……..http://www.fpaa.com.au/media/48247/ods___sgg_web_list.pdf "
If an Extinguishing Agent Handling License (EAHL) is required for your site, whatever the agent, Region West is authorized.
