The Association for the Promotion of German Fire Protection e. V. (vfdb), the "Operational Fire Protection" section of the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV), VdS Schadenverhütung GmbH and the Association of Fire Protection Officers in Germany (VBBD) have jointly revised the guidelines on the training and activities of fire protection officers. (VBBD) have jointly revised the guidelines on the training and activities of fire protection officers.

The national guidelines are published with identical wording as DGUV Information 205-003, vfdb 12-09-01:2014- 08(03) and VdS 3111.

The previous guidelines BGI/GUV-I 847, vfdb 12-09/01:2009-03 and VdS 3111 are thus obsolete.

The fire safety officer is a trained person appointed by the employer to support and advise the employer on fire safety issues. In this way, the employer can fulfil his responsibility for fire protection (§3ArbSchG, §618 para.1BGB, §62 para.1 HGB) and delegate tasks that he cannot perform himself to a suitable person, the fire protection officer.

The fire safety officer has a wide range of tasks. In addition to his advisory function, he takes care of the preparation and updating of fire protection regulations, the monitoring of the maintenance of fire protection equipment in the company and the elimination of fire protection deficiencies.

The appointment of a fire safety officer can not only increase the safety level but also lead to a positive assessment in the premium structure of a fire insurance.This course enables prospective fire safety officers to carry out their activities in the field of structural and organisational fire protection in a legally secure manner.
