The Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022

The Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022 (the Regulations) have been introduced as an important step towards implementing the recommendations of the Grenfell Tower Inquiry Phase 1 report. The Regulations were introduced under Article 24 of the Fire Safety Order and came into force on 23 January 2023. 

The Regulations only apply to England and can be found on the UK Government website.

Most of the requirements set out in the Regulations are imposed on the responsible person (RP), which RPs need to plan and prepare for ahead of the Regulations coming into force. 

The regulations require RPs in multi-occupied residential buildings to take specific actions, depending on the height of the building:  

  • Some provisions apply regardless of building height; 
  • More are needed once a building reaches 11 metres, and  
  • Further requirements are introduced when a building reaches 18 metres (or 7 storeys) or more.
