CALL FOR EVIDENCE ON FIRE SAFETY REGULATION

Static Author Display NameFire Risk Management

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 regulates fire safety in non-domestic premises such as workplaces and the common parts of residential buildings. These regulations cover such matters as fire risk assessment, duties to take general fire safety precautions, consult with and provide fire safety information, instruction and training for employees, fire detection, emergency exits etc.

In conjunction with the recently launched consultation on reforming the building safety regulation system the government has also launched a call for evidence to determine whether the Fire Safety Order is fit for purpose for all regulated premises.

You can find details of the call for evidence and submit your views using the Gov.Uk website at: https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/the-regulatory-reform-fire-safety-order-2005-call-for-evidence

This call for evidence runs until 31st July 2019.
