The mission of the CFPA-A is to reduce the fire problem through education, research, codes and standards, improved communications, technology transfer, and the exchange of fire data and statistics.

The Confederation of Fire Protection Associations - Asia , (CFPA-A), is a body of leading fire protection organizations from the Asia Pacific Region that have joined forces to collectively direct their resources at reducing the global fire problem and increasing life safety. By sharing experience, research, technical know-how, and fire statistics, the group aims to maximize the effectiveness of fire prevention and protection and foster improved international fire safety codes and standards. The CFPA-A meets every year at which time some of the more challenging global fire problems are debated. These sessions provide an opportunity to share advanced research and developments that have taken place in specific problem areas. The Confederation is an assembly of authoritative, knowledgeable organizations that have made impressive contributions in the field.

CFPA-A is affiliated with the Confederation of Fire Protection Associations International.
