Dear Colleagues,

I am conducting research into the current situation with performance-based design for fire and its application within various building regulatory systems around the world. I would appreciate your help by completing a survey on this topic using the link provided below.

I would like to obtain feedback from a wide range of stakeholders, including fire (safety) engineers, fire service, building officials, architects and others. As such, I ask that you circulate the survey to your colleagues in your discipline and in related disciplines who you think may be interested and able to help.

Since I am attempting to collect data by country, for purposes of comparison, I would ask that if you work in more than one country, that you complete separate surveys for each country that you would like to report on.

All responses are anonymous (no names, affiliations, etc.). Responses will be used to compare different perspectives within a country (for example, difference between fire safety engineer and fire official) and between countries (for example, situation in Spain as compared with New Zealand). 

The survey may take between 10 to 20 minutes, depending on amount of detail response you choose to provide. The link to the survey is as follows: 

The outcomes from the survey, once analyzed, will be incorporated into papers and presentations. 

If you would like to provide feedback in addition to the questions in the survey, please feel free to email me directly at Den här e-postadressen skyddas mot spambots. Du måste tillåta JavaScript för att se den., and include the following words in the subjective line: PBD Survey. Your name and affiliation will not be reported unless you provide permission to do so.

Thank you for your assistance with this research effort

Best regards, Brian
