Helping You Achieve Compliance

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 applies to all buildings other than domestic housing, but includes common areas of apartment dwellings and flats, replacing 118 pieces of fire safety legislation, including Fire Service ‘Fire Certificates’ which are no longer valid.

The law now shifts responsibility from the fire authorities for fire safety to whoever has day-to-day control of premises. Each business must appoint a responsible person, who could be the owner, manager, facilities manager or an expert consultant appointed to manage the fire risk to the building, including those using the premises and its immediate surroundings.

The designated responsible person is required by law to ensure that all fire safety provisions are met and maintained. This includes the inspection and maintenance of your buildings’ fire door safety systems.

Non-compliance is a criminal offence and can lead to fines, criminal convictions and imprisonment.
