Fire Safety Regulations 2023

The Fire Safety Regulations 2023 apply across the UK and Ireland and are continually updated. Tragedies such as Grenfell Tower have caused review of the legislation that is already in place namely the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. More and more emphasis is being placed on the competency of responsible persons, it is also addressing the variances in construction of buildings and methods of escape for residents, employees and visitors.

“The Government continues to implement new legislation following the Hackett review and Grenfell Tower Inquiry. This has resulted in amendments to the existing Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (Fire Safety Order) which governs day to day fire safety.

The Fire Safety Act 2021 (FSA 2021), came into force in England in May 2022 and is now fully operational in both Wales and England.

Amidst the publicity associated with the passage into law of the Building Safety Act and the significant challenges it imposes for all operating in the built environment sector, it is important to note that there are also very challenging new fire safety regulations – the Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022 (Fire Safety Regulations) – which came into force on 23 January 2023.
