Annual Inspection Checklist for Water Supplies
This letter serves to announce the introduction of an annual inspection checklist to
facilitate annual inspection (AI) of water supplies by Registered Fire Service Installation
The AI checklist for water supplies (Annex) is devised by making reference to
different codes and standards and upon extensive consultation with local trade members. It
also specifies the minimum requirements for conducting Ais of transfer pumping installations
which are used to refill fire service installation water tank(s). Items listed in the checklist and
its table, if applicable to the water supplies in the buildings/premises, shall be inspected/tested.
RFSICs shall, after inspection, complete the checklist by indicating, where appropriate,
whether the inspected and tested items conform to the standards/requirements as stipulated in
the Code of Practice for Minimum Fire Service Installations and Equipment (the version that
is relevant to the buildings/premises).
This apart, RFSICs shall duly observe the principles and requirements regarding
"Completion of checklists for Al" and "Duty and responsibility of RFSICs" as stated in
FSD Circular Letter No. 4/2019 "Annual Inspection Checklists for Fire Hydrant/Hose Reel
Systems and Supply Tanks" issued on 13 December 2019. It is important for RF SI Cs to note
that they shall bear the ultimate responsibility for certifying that the FSis are in efficient
working order and conform to the requirements specified in the Codes of Practice for Minimum
Fire Service Installations and Equipment and Inspection, Testing and Maintenance of
Installation and Equipment.
To allow more time for the trade to acquaint themselves with the new arrangement
and practice, the AI checklist for water supplies will take effect on 1 November 2021. The
new arrangement will be reviewed after 12 months of its implementation. Meanwhile,
checklists for other fire service installations and equipment will be devised for promulgation
in due course.
