Welcome to the Fire Protection Association of New Zealand

Formed in 1975, the Fire Protection Association New Zealand Inc (FPANZ) is New Zealand’s peak body for fire safety.  We provide information, services and education to the fire protection industry and the community at large. 

Our mission is to be the voice of the Fire Protection community and to continually expand professional expertise to reduce the impact of fire in New Zealand.

As a not-for-profit member body, we are here to work with our members, government and the wider community for continuous improvement in regulations, standards, education, awareness, products and services for the protection of life, property and the environment from fire.

Halon & BCF Responsible Disposal Project 2015 -2017 


The Fire Protection Association of NZ (FPANZ) is pleased to announce of their project to recover and dispose of Halon & BCF extinguishers from commercial users and private owners. This is a continuation of the successful work undertaken over many years previously by Halon Recycling and FPANZ.

Information on Halon

We are encouraging members of the public to check their boats, cars, workshops, caravans and planes to see if they have a yellow extinguisher and if so to call in to one of our many member sites so these units can be replaced.

There will be a small cost to change, however both the public and the environment will benefit as we can be sure new systems will operate in event of a fire and the impact on the ozone layer will be reduced

The servicing of Halon extinguishers is not available and there are fears that systems and hand extinguishers have not been serviced and may fail in the event of a fire. Just like smoke detectors fire extinguishers should be checked annually by a FPANZ certified agent details of approved agents are below.
