ACRs can include
- Emergency lifts
- Emergency lighting
- Emergency warning and intercommunication systems
- Exit doors
- Exit signs
- Fire control panels
- Fire detectors and alarm systems
- Fire doors
- Fire extinguishers (portable)
- Fire hydrants
- Paths of travel to exits

- Leaseholders: Often a requirement when a leaseholder has responsibility for key safety measures like fire extinguishers etc. Check your lease contract.
- Freeholders: Where there are no formal regulatory requirements, responsible organisations obtain ACRs as part of their WHS Duty of care obligations.
May not be applicable
When a landlord remains responsible for the essential safety services, organisations issue an exemption certificate for that property. That way all properties must either have a regulatory certificate, an ACR, or an ACR exemption
Generally every year.
