Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022 - Fault and Information Reporting

From 23rd January 2023, the Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022 (the Regulations) make it a requirement for Responsible Persons of high-rise residential buildings to provide information to fire and rescue services to assist in planning for and responding to a fire in their building. A high-rise residential building is defined as a building containing two or more sets of domestic premises that is at least 18 metres tall or has at least seven storeys.  

For further information on the Regulations, please see the fact sheets provided the Government to support the Regulations.

In preparation for the implementation of the Regulations Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service has delivered a number of presentations to support Responsible Persons in meeting their responsibilities. For reference, the slide pack from the presentation is available in the link below.
