Fire Risk Assessment

In April 2006, the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 came into force in England and Wales.  The Order replaced various pieces of legislation relating to fire safety, the main aim being to simplify the requirements of the management of fire safety.  The broad approach of the Order is to reduce the risk of fire and spread of fire and this is achieved by means of a 'suitable and sufficient' fire risk assessment. Fire certificates previously issued by the fire authority are no longer valid.
