Regulatory Reform Order


The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order came into place into 2006 and dramatically changed Fire Safety law forever. The requirement for businesses to have fire certificates was abolished, and individuals in an organisation were made responsible to prevent fire and reduce the risk of fire. The Responsible Person is now responsible for carrying out a risk assessment to identify, manage and reduce the risk of fire.
