Fire safety law 2006

Fire safety law changed in October 2006. The law:

  • Emphasises preventing fires and reducing risk
  • Makes it your responsibility to ensure the safety of everyone who uses your premises and in the immediate vicinity
  • Does away with the need for fire certificates

A set of guides has been developed to tell you what you have to do to comply with fire safety law, help you to carry out a fire risk assessment and identify the general fire precautions you need to have in place.
