P-05-858 Fire Sprinklers are for life, not a fast buck!

This petition was submitted by John Newman, having collected 209 signatures.


Text of Petition

Call upon the Welsh Government to amend paragraph 2.6 of Approved Document B in such a way as to make it mandatory that the design, installation and maintenance of residential and domestic fire suppression systems is conducted only by those that are members of appropriate third party certification schemes. This will ensure that such life saving systems are correctly designed, installed and maintained by suitably qualified personnel. Sadly this is currently not the case.
