Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 - 10 years on……….

Date Added 05/05/2016

With the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order nearly 10 years old now, the London Fire Brigade are set to investigate how successful it has been and what can be improved. There have been a number of prosecutions and the biggest concerns are:

· Enforcement of other related legislation such as Housing Act and Building Regulations.
