When Are the Changes Set to Take Place?
The rollout of interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms will happen over a 10-year period.
Below are the dates that buildings will need to comply by:
- 1 January 2017: in new dwellings and substantially renovated dwellings.
- 1 January 2022: in domestic dwellings leased and sold
- 1 January 2027: in all other domestic dwellings.
