We would like to make our customers aware of the new Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022 that were published on 6th December 2022 and come into force on 23rdJanuary 2023. 

About the Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022

The regulations extend the duties imposed by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and are intended to implement the majority of the recommendations made to the government, in the Grenfell Tower Inquiry Phase 1 report, which require a change in the law.

These Regulations apply to all buildings in England that comprise two or more domestic premises (including the residential parts of mixed-use buildings) although there are more requirements dependant on the height of the building. These buildings are, principally, blocks of flats (whether purpose-built or converted from another type of building, such as a house or office building), but also include blocks used for student accommodation.  

The Regulations apply regardless of whether the flats are subject to a long (e.g. 99 years) lease or are rented, and regardless of whether the flats are used to accommodate the general public or a particular group of people (as in the case of, for example, sheltered housing for older people).
