If you are the ‘responsible person’ for a multi-occupied residential building you must be aware of your duties under the new Fire Safety Regulations 2022. The new regulations implement the majority of recommendations from the Grenfell Tower enquiry, an important step forward in improving fire safety for the public.

The new regulations require ‘responsible persons’ of high-rise residential buildings to:

  • provide their local fire and rescue service with up-to-date electronic building plans and information on the design and materials of their external wall
  • undertake monthly checks of firefighting lifts, evacuation lifts and other key pieces of firefighting equipment
  • install a secure information box and wayfinding signage
