Government makes guidance available on fire regulations

Government guidance to help  GP practices comply with fire regulations starting from 1 October will be available when the law changes.  

The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) delayed the regulations’ introduction for six months.  

However, it was not until shortly before the change that the DCLG was able to produce a guide for healthcare premises. 

Under the rules, any fire certificate issued under previous regulations ceased to have any legal effect. Legislation with similar content will apply across the UK. The guidance is available at the department’s website.
