UK Government Announces New Fire Safety Bill

 | Published on 3/23/2020

The proposed Fire Safety Bill will ‘amend the Fire Safety Order 2005 to clarify that the responsible person or duty-holder for multi-occupied, residential buildings must manage and reduce the risk of fire for:

  1. The structure and external walls of the building, including cladding, balconies and windows
  2. Entrance doors to individual flats that open into common parts

This clarification will empower fire and rescue services to take enforcement action and hold building owners to account if they are not compliant.’
