The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 Consultation
Thursday 6th June 2019
The government is seeking feedback on the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 which regulates fire safety in non-domestic premises.
"The government is seeking feedback on the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 – the Fire Safety Order – which regulates fire safety in non-domestic premises. This call for evidence is the first step to update the evidence base to ensure that the Fire Safety Order is fit for purpose for all regulated premises. We would like to hear from enforcing authorities, fire safety professionals, those who are regulated by the order and those whose safety must be considered under the order. For workplaces, this includes employers and employees; for the parts used in common in residential buildings, this includes landlords, managing agents and residents."
BAFE will respond in the interest of competency of fire safety work undertaken to meet the obligations of this legislation and the benefits of Third Party Certification to help satisfy this.
BAFE’s response will be published on the website when available.
The Consultation is open from 06/06/19 - 31/07/19 (closing at 11:45pm)
