Fire Door Safety Inspection

A fire door inspection is an essential step needed to achieve compliance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.


Fire Door Safety Inspection

Your Responsibility & The Law

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 applies to all buildings other than domestic housing, but includes common areas of apartment dwellings and flats, and replaces 118 pieces of previous fire legislation, including the old fire certificates which are no longer valid.

The law now shifts responsibility from the fire authorities for fire safety to whoever has day-to-day control of premises. Each business must appoint a responsible person, who could be the owner, manager, facilities manager or an expert consultant appointed to manage the fire risk to the building, including those using the premises and its immediate surroundings.

The designated responsible person is required by law to ensure that all fire safety provisions are met and maintained. This includes the inspection and maintain of your buildings fire door safety systems.

Noncompliance is a criminal offence and can lead to fines and criminal convictions.
