Following on from…

…our recent article, the new fire safety legal provisions within section 156 of the Building Safety Act 2022 have now come into effect.

These improvements form Phase 3 of the Home Office’s fire safety reform programme, building on Phase 1 (the Fire Safety Act 2021) and Phase 2 (the Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022).

Phase 3 further strengthens fire safety in all FSO regulated premises by:

  • improving cooperation and coordination between Responsible Persons (RPs)
  • increasing requirements in relation to the recording and sharing of fire safety information thus creating a continual record throughout a building’s lifespan
  • making it easier for enforcement authorities to take action against non-compliance
  • ensuring residents have access to comprehensive information about fire safety in their building
