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 are being introduced under Article 24 of the Fire Safety Order and will come into force on 23 January 2023.

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 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.  

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