Global Professional Recognition of the Fire Protection Engineer

Currently, fire protection engineering which is defined as the application of science and engineering principles to protect people and their environments from the destructive effects of fire and smoke is practiced throughout the world. At the same time, the qualifications for those who practice fire protection engineering are not consistent between countries. For example, the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom have elaborate licensure/certification systems that establish competence as a fire protection engineer. While other countries do not have a means to establish competence.


Without an effective licensure/certification system there is no way to protect the public’s health, safety and welfare from incompetent engineering. Establishing competence in any profession is sometimes defined as a “three legged chair” – Education, Experience and Evaluation. This presentation will focus on  these legs – are used to evaluate competence in the global fire protection engineering community.
