Fire protection certification materials

The Philadelphia Fire Code requires property owners to have fire protection systems inspected annually. Fire protection systems include:

  • Sprinkler and standpipe systems.
  • Special hazard suppression systems.
  • Fire Alarm systems.

If a system fails inspection, the inspector must send a deficiency notice to L&I. Notices must be submitted within 45 days of inspection. The forms and notices on this page can be used for inspections.

To inspect and certify new installation of building systems or components as part of a permit, use the construction inspections forms.
