Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (“RRFSO”)* comes into force in October 2006 and applies to most businesses. This legislation will make it the legal duty of the Responsible Person in an organisation to ensure the competence of those who supply and maintain the fire detection and fire fighting equipment.
This legal duty can be reliably fulfilled by ensuring your suppliers in these areas have the appropriate UKAS accredited third party accreditation.
Your fire detection and fire fighting equipment has to be manufactured, installed and maintained in accordance with the relevant British Standards to ensures that it will be deemed to be ‘suitable’ and ‘adequate’ and ‘properly maintained’. The appropriate certification by a UKAS-accredited independent third party guarantees this.
Failure to have equipment manufactured, installed and maintained in accordance with the relevant British Standards is likely to be a breach of many insurance policies and may well have the effect of invalidating your insurance cover.
