Fire Risk Assessment

What is the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005

In the United Kingdom the Fire Service was subject to the Fire Services Act 1947 and in 2004 it was replaced in England and Wales by the The Fire and Rescue Services Act 2004 – Chapter 21. However fire safety was covered by about seventy pieces if fire safety legislation the principal ones being the Fire Precautions Act 1961 and the Fire Precautions (Workplace) Regulations 1997/1999. It was decided the legislation needed to be to rationalise and simplified in England and Wales. This was achieved by using the Regulatory Reform Act 2001 to create a new order and this new order is the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

In Scotland this was rejected and separate fire service and fire safety legislation was introduced. It was achieve by introducing the The Fire (Scotland) Act 2005which created The Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006 plus a number of other relevant fire safety documents, more information is available at the Scottish Fire Law website.
