Fire compartmentaion for all vertical shafts

It is required to surround a vertical shaft using fire compartment like fire shatter, fire door and fire resistance wall by Building Standard Law in Japan. When I went to Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam, I didn’t confirm that shutters had been installed around vertical shafts like escalator shaft and atrium. Does it comply with regulations on building construction of Vietnam that there is no fire shutter around vertical shaft? Then, is this condition pretty safe in real fire?
