Did you know that the new The Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022 are coming into force in England on 23 January 2023? They are based on most of the recommendations made in the Grenfell Tower Inquiry Phase 1 report.
If you are a ‘Responsible Person’ for any multi-occupied residential building of any size, you may need to take action now.
In this blog post, we thought it would be helpful to summarise the new responsibilities. This will help you decide how to act, or to get help from our team of fire safety experts.
The new regulations affect Responsible Persons (RPs) of multi-occupied residential buildings that are:
The regulations require Responsible Persons of all multi-occupied residential buildings to:
RPs of buildings between 11m and 17.9m must ALSO:
In addition to all the above, RPs of buildings that are 18m (or 7 storeys) or higher MUST ALSO:
The above is intended as a guide. The full regulations are very detailed, so you will need to read them in full in order to make sure you comply.
Alternatively, talk to Environtec’s fire safety team. We can undertake a comprehensive review of your current fire compliance to make sure that all the properties you are responsible for are fully compliant with the regulations.
