The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 was introduced in October 2006. Fire and rescue authorities and other bodies (‘enforcing authorities’) have a duty to enforce fire safety in non-domestic premises.
This is the first guidance note in a series intended to help enforcing authorities to better understand their duties under the order and for the public to better understand the intent of specific aspects of the order.
