Fire Safety Regulations

What To Expect From The New Fire Safety Regulations In England

As of 2023, new fire safety regulations will be implemented in England. This is in order to enhance the safety and protection of buildings and their occupants. These regulations, known as the Building Safety Bill, aim to improve fire safety in high-rise residential buildings by implementing stricter standards for the construction, and management of these buildings.

What Are The New Fire Safety Regulations?

One key aspect of the new regulations is the requirement for all high-rise residential buildings to have a “golden thread” of information. This includes all documentation and records related to the building’s design, construction, and maintenance. This information must be easily accessible to building managers and fire safety professionals and must be kept up-to-date throughout the building’s lifetime. This will help ensure that fire safety measures are properly maintained and that any potential risks are identified and addressed in a timely manner.


Another important aspect of the new regulations is the requirement for regular fire safety inspections to be conducted. These inspections will be carried out by trained and qualified fire safety professionals and will include assessments of the building’s fire safety systems. Examples includes sprinklers and alarms, as well as the building’s overall design and construction. Any issues identified during the inspection must be promptly addressed by the building’s management.


In addition to regular inspections, the new regulations also require that high-rise residential buildings have a fire safety plan in place. This plan must be regularly reviewed and updated and must be easily accessible to all occupants of the building. The plan should include clear evacuation procedures and emergency contact information, as well as detailed information on the building’s fire safety systems and any potential hazards.


The new regulations also include provisions for the retrofitting of sprinkler systems in existing high-rise residential buildings. This is an important measure, as sprinklers have been shown to greatly reduce the risk of fire death and injury. Building owners and managers will be required to install sprinkler systems in their buildings, and must ensure that they are properly maintained and tested on a regular basis.


Finally, the new regulations require that building owners provide regular fire safety training to all occupants of high-rise residential buildings. This training should cover topics such as evacuation procedures, the use of fire extinguishers and other fire safety equipment, and the proper procedures for reporting a fire.

I have used RAD for a couple of projects and found them to be good to deal with. They did a pair of 3 storey open plan houses and seven three and four story town houses. The sprinklers were to improve fire safety, allow more flexible space and comply with building regulations. The sprinklers were far more cost effective than the mist type systems and look very discrete when installed.

My requirement was a bit unusual for RAD in that I wanted a mist system in one room of a rented house. I had no drawings or technical back up. RAD were very helpful and repositioned the unit after the initial installation. Luckily with the help of Sonny, the engineer it all worked out very well.

As somebody who feels that it should be a necessity for all properties to have fire sprinkler systems, I am a big fan of this company. I have used them numerous times to service my home system and they are very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend their service.
