Fire Regulations

Insurance companies assume when giving cover that all fire regulations have been complied with.

Fire Risk Assessment Legislation

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, and the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 and the associated Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006 came into effect and replaced over 70 pieces of fire safety law. Make sure you know where you stand.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005

Under The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, and the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 and the associated Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006, the responsible person/duty holder must carry out a fire safety risk assessment and implement and maintain a fire management plan.  Failure to carry this out could result in a fine, imprisonment, or both.
The law applies to you if you are:

  • Responsible for business premises
  • An employer or self-employed with business premises
  • Responsible for a part of a dwelling where that part is solely used
  • for business purposes
  • A charity or voluntary organisation
  • A contractor with a degree of control over any premises
  • Providing accommodation for paying guests
  • A residential property with any communal area

In addition, more detailed advice and guidance on the implementation of a fire risk management plan can be found in the guides below.

The more technical guidance documents have been produced with specific types of business premises in mind.
