Fire Risk Assessment
(c) 2013 Fire Guidance UK LLP
No nonsense fire safety consulting
Since the introduction of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 it is a requirement that all occupied premises (with the exception of single family dwellings and a small number of others) are required to have in place a Fire Risk Assessment.  Fire Certificates are no longer issued or valid.
The onus of responsibility for the fire safety of a building occupants and visitors now rests firmly with the building owner or occupier.  The role of the Local Fire and Rescue Service is now that of inspector and enforcer of fire safety provisions.
With the author of the RICS publication on hand "The new fire legislation 2006: A practical guide" Fire Guidance UK can provide you with a Fire Risk Assessment of your premises - whether based on the UK PAS79 guidance or NFPA551.
