Economic growth, increased urbanization and construction volume can place pressure on building regulatory systems and influence building fire safety. The more rapid or widespread the changes, the larger the pressures can be. One solution is to move to performance-based approaches. This requires appropriate regulatory, education and research infrastructure. Criteria for successful transition to performance-based approach to fire safety are suggested. Using the criteria, three countries moving toward performance are evaluated, and a roadmap for successful transition to performance is suggested.
