Abstract: Proper implementation of fire safety management is a key to providing total fire safety. In this paper, a regulatory framework related to fire safety management in buildings in Hong Kong has been reviewed. Current statutory requirements covering both administrative and technical aspects of fire safetymanagement elements are outlined. Responsibilities of different management parties in a typical multiple occupancies commercial building on operating the fire safety measures are discussed. It is observed that only maintenance of active fire protection systems are emphasised at the moment. A more detailed firesafety plan should be formulated with clear legal liability for undertaking management responsibilities.
