Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue utilises the National Enforcement Register which is operated by National Fire Chiefs Council. The Enforcement Register has been moved to a new location and can be found here. At present historic records have not yet been moved to the new Register and can be viewed here. It is not currently possible to update the historic records and therefore if you have an enquiry about enforcement action taken by Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue FRS please contact the NFCC via email on email@example.com.
All notices served by Royal Berkshire Fire Authority under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 will be recorded on our public register in accordance with the Environment and Safety Information Act 1988. The register is available for public inspection via our website and at reasonable hours at our Service Headquarters at Newsham Court, Pincents Kiln, Calcot, Reading, Berkshire, RG31 7SD
Information will be available within 14 days of the expiry of the 21 days statutory appeal period. Where an appeal is made a notice will not be recorded on the register until a decision has been made. In cases where an appeal is successful no entry will be made.
Entries will be kept on the register for a period of not less than three years from the date on which the notice was served.
