The Australasian Fire Authorities Council commissioned the project team to gather the opinions of various stakeholders concerning the need for reform to the classification system within the Building Code of Australia. In the Building Code of Australia 1996 buildings are classified by use alone, and fail to consider fire load and occupant behavior when specifying various life safety and fire protection systems. Through interviews with stakeholders the authors have exposed opinions regarding possible reforms to the current classification system.
