What documents will you need to obtain a Fire License?

The general set of documents that shall be submitted to the SES in order to obtain the Fire License is as follows:

  • an application;
  • statements with the number of employees (specifying education and length of service);
  • statements about availability of material and technical base;
  • document on the right of ownership or lease of premises;
  • job orders.

In case you do not have enough staff or equipment to obtain the license, our lawyers will be able to find a personal solution to achieve your goal.

Fire licenses are issued within 2-3 weeks, but it all depends on the speed of preparation of documents, as applicants often face problems with the preparation of statements.

The license is issued on the SES template with the stamp of the authority. You can see a positive decision on the submitted documents on the official portal of electronic services. 

In case of performing any fire safety activity without the license, you will face a fine of UAH 17,000-34,000 with the possibility of confiscation of equipment.
