Kindly confirm if buildings below 50 feet do not come under high rise and such kind of buildings do not require fire NOC from fire department.

Are these buildings subject to fire license?

Thanks & Regards,

sure! every factory should get fire noc from the authority.if it is below 50 feet the divisional fire officer thru local fire station officer is having the power to certify if he found sufficient fire cylinders,water hoses and fire training is provided for the employees of the factory.if it is above 50 feet then it will go tto the regional office.

The  things involved in the certification are, sufficient fire cylinders,fire trainings,gangway marking,sump(water storage) capacity,the space around the factory should be sufficient for the movement of the fire vehicle.

Is fire license required before starting a project itself (i mean  about a green field project), or after commissioning?
