Call for evidence - The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 regulates fire safety in a wide spectrum of non-domestic premises, including workplaces such as licensed venues.
The government recently launched a wider public consultation, Building a Safer Future: Proposals for reform in the building safety regulatory system . This follows the recommendations of the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety , led by Dame Judith Hackitt following the Grenfell Tower Tragedy.
The consultation includes a specific call for evidence in relation to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, which is open until 11:45pm on 31 July 2019. The Home Office describe this call for evidence as the first step in a process to ensure that the Fire Safety Order continues to be fit for purpose as part of the government’s consideration of the wider building safety landscape.
The Call for Evidence will only consider the application of the Fire Safety Order in England.
The views of enforcing authorities as well as those responsible for the safety of buildings covered by the Fire Safety Order and those working within them.
