Fire Safety :: Fire Safety Law
Fire safety law changed in October 2006 with the introduction of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety ) Order 2005. The requirement for businesses to have fire certificates has been abolished and any previously held are no longer valid.
Under the Order, the responsible person must carry out a fire safety risk assessment and implement and maintain a fire management plan. Further information on what you need to do when carrying out a risk assessment is available in the 5-step fire risk assessment checklist.
In addition, more detailed advice and guidance on the implementation of a fire risk management plan can be found in the series of guidance documents available here.Click here for more information
