Fire Risk Assessment PAS 79 Revision is now available for public comment

Thursday 30th April 2020


BSI are now accepting comments on the revised Publicly Available Specification (PAS 79)

BSI are now accepting comments on both parts of the specification revisions:

 

PAS 79-1 (Fire risk assessment. Part 1: Premises other than housing - Code of practice)
“This part of PAS 79 gives recommendations and corresponding examples of documentation for undertaking, and recording the significant findings of, fire risk assessments in non domestic premises and parts of non-domestic premises for which fire risk assessments are required by legislation.”

PAS 79-2 (Fire risk assessment. Part 2: Housing - Code of practice)
“This part of PAS 79 gives recommendations and corresponding examples of documentation for undertaking, and recording the significant findings of, fire risk assessments in housing premises and parts of housing premises for which fire risk assessments are required by legislation. Recommendations are also provided for fire risk assessments that are outside the scope of fire safety legislation, but are designed to protect residents of blocks of flats, sheltered housing and extra care housing in the event of a fire in their own flat.”
