John Cato, Executive Head of Policy Development at the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA), explained the registration process for all Fire Protection System Practitioners (FPSP). This process applies to those in the field of sprinklers, gas suppression and detection. This topic was particularly interesting to insurers since it means that the Engineering Council will now start regulating the field. Registrations will open in June for select categories.
