Are you a Responsible Person of a multi-occupied residential building?
The Fire Safety Act 2021 commenced on 16 May 2022 and can be found here. The Act amends the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (the “Fire Safety Order”). It applies to any building containing two or more domestic premises.
The Fire Safety Order defines the Responsible Person as anyone who has control or anyone who has a degree of control over certain areas within the premises. This could be the owner, employer or occupier.
