The Building Regulations 2012 require owners to have mains powered smoke alarms fitted to all residential properties in Perth, WA that are subject to sale, rent or hire. Hard-wired smoke alarms require a licensed electrician to either connect or disconnect the smoke alarm. Where the Regulations permit a battery powered smoke alarm to be fitted instead of one connected to mains power, a licensed electrician is not required to fit the battery powered smoke alarm. It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure that;
Smoke alarms/detectors are in working order
Smoke alarms/detectors are no more than 10 years old
Smoke alarms/detectors are compliant with AS/3786/2014
Smoke alarms/detectors are permanently wired to mains
