Abstract: The possibility of applying the American safety system: Fire Safety Evaluation System of the National Fire Protection Association, USA for business occupancies in Hong Kong is discussed. Fire safety parameters concerned are compared with key parameters listed in the local fire codes. Discussion is highlighted on passive building design, fire services installation and control of the key risk factors appeared in local codes. It is found that the approach is suitable for designing new buildings, and for working out fire safety management in existing buildings. However, the fire safety parameters and their score spreading should be specifically designed for Hong Kong.
