Fire safety law changed in October 2006
New fire safety rules affecting all non-domestic premises in England and Wales came into force on 1 October 2006, in accordance with the 'Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005' (S.I. 2005/1541, ISBN 0110729455), available below. The new law:
Emphasises preventing fires and reducing risk
Makes it your responsibility to ensure the safety of everyone who uses your premises and in the immediate vicinity
Does away with the need for fire certificates
These guidance notes will help you to comply with the new law. There are 12 'Fire Safety - Risk Assessment' Guides in the series, all of which are available below.
