The Environment and Safety Information Act 1988 Public Register


This Act requires the Fire Service and other local authorities to maintain a register of notices served concerning health, safety and environmental protection and for related purposes.

Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service has set up a register containing details of notices that we have issued as the enforcing Authority for the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. These notices are: 
  • Alterations Notices, 
  • Enforcement Notices and 
  • Prohibition Notices.

The register is available for public inspection through the Service�s web site as well as being available for inspection at reasonable hours without charge at Fire Service Headquarters at Bridle Road in Bootle.

Information of notices will be available on the Service�s web site within 14 days of the notice being served, however, where there is a statutory right of appeal against a notice, details will only be entered 14 days after the end of the period allowed for appeals. If an appeal is actually made, the notice would be entered within 14 days of the final decision. No entry would be made if a notice is overturned.

Notices will stay on the register for at least three years or as long as they remain in force.

Each entry in the register shall contain sufficient particulars to convey the substance of the notice to which it relates.

The Legislative Fire Safety Team will ensure that information held is current.
