The government has issued the new Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022 which outlines new duties under the Fire Safety Order for the Accountable Person(s) to ensure the fire safety of their building is fully compliant.
These legislative changes will help to meet the recommendations from the Grenfell Tower Inquiry, by altering several regulations included in article 24 of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. The new requirements have been implemented to ensure residents safety and their awareness of the current fire safety instructions set out for their building.
Although the regulations are to become law on the 7th of July this year it is not intended that they be enforced until January 2023, allowing both the Accountable Person and any enforcing authorities the time to implement the changes. With this in mind it is recommend that action be taken sooner rather than later, as to not be caught out, come the end of the year. So to make it simple for the Accountable Person, 4site Consulting have created information cards on the latest changes relevant to you, including an infographic easily identifying the new responsibilities required for your building.
Further guidance on the Fire Safety Order will be issued throughout 2022. Keep up to date with 4site Consulting to be the best informed on any and all changes as they happen.
