Wednesday 29th April 2020


BAFE are a member of the Fire Sector Federation

In the Fire Sector Federation’s latest newsletter (Spring 2020), they state: “the Federation has continued to work with Home Office to address some of the implications arising from the proposed amendment of the Fire Safety Order.”

 

“Most recently this has involved concerns on updating fire risk assessments to include the external walls of multi occupied residential buildings. The Bill’s impact assessment suggests around 1.6 million buildings may be affected by this clarification and the Federation, highlighting limited industry capacity, has suggested a phased introduction will be required to meet the probable demand.”

 

BAFE will continue to assist the Federation and provide input in the interest of competent fire safety provision where possible to help development of the Fire Safety Bill - https://www.gov.uk/government/news/fire-safety-bill
