New Fire Safety Regulations coming January 2023 (England), are you ready?
From the 23rd of January 2023, the Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022, will make it a legal requirement for responsible persons for all multi-occupied residential buildings in England with storeys above 11 metres in height to:
Undertake quarterly checks of all fire doors (including self-closing devices) in the common parts
Undertake – on a best endeavour basis – annual checks of all flat entrance doors (including self-closing devices) that lead onto a building’s common parts.
The Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022 (the Regulations) have been introduced as an important step towards implementing the recommendations of the Grenfell Tower Inquiry Phase 1 report.
The Regulations are being introduced under Article 24 of the Fire Safety Order and will come into force on 23 January 2023.
The minimum requirement is that the inspections are to be completed by the responsible person, and training is available to ensure that they understand how to carry these out safely and effectively and can record the inspection so that evidence of compliance at that point in time is available.
Should a problem or any damage be identified during these inspections, more detailed checks of the doors may need to be completed by a specialist.
