Fire Systems Inspections Reporting


The Norfolk Fire Division, as of May 1, 2021 is using the Brycer Compliance Engine reporting system as a means of reporting inspections, deficiencies and impairments to fire safety systems within the City of Norfolk and the 2 mile extra territorial area.

System test reports for many systems are mandatory and must be submitted electronically to the Norfolk Fire Division via our online vendor,  (TCE).

There is a $15 filing fee associated with the submission of each report, per system, per year, except for hood systems, which are required every six-months of service. Your service provider (the company you hire to do the testing and maintenance on your building's fire protection systems) is responsible for collecting these fees from their clients, administering the reporting requirements, and then submitting payments along with test reports. 

Reports must be submitted within one week of the inspection or maintenance completion. Systems with impairments or red-tagged systems must also be reported immediately using the TCE site,  Service providers must be registered with the City of Norfolk Building Services CONTRACTORS REGISTRATION requirements:
