The NSW Government has introduced new fire safety standards for Short Term Rental Accommodation (STRA). An STRA Property Identification (PID) number is required to list your property on any platform, including airbnb and Stayz. You will need to meet some specific requirements to be issued a PID number. One of these requirements is compliant evacuation diagrams.
Evacuation plans that meet specified standards are required at the entrance to your property and in all bedrooms. These new rules were introduced in March 2022. STRA Evacuation Plans produce evacuation diagrams and Emergency Advice Sheets to assist in registration with Planning NSW.
There are specific requirements for these evacuation plans as defined in the Short-term Rental Accommodation Fire Safety Standard. As well as the components of the plans and their locations, there is a requirement regarding the orientation of the plans. See the example evacuation plans on the process page.
As well as evacuation diagrams, you will also need an Emergency Information Pack to be issued a PID number. We have an Emergency Advice Sheet that we can complete and add to your order.
