Practical fire Safety Guidance for Existing Non-Residential Premises

Monday, November 28, 2016

ISBN: 9781786526212

Consultation on the revised fire safety guidance for non-residential premises.

Executive Summary

This consultation is to seek comment on a revised volume of practical fire safety guidance. The guidance aims to help those responsible for fire safety in premises such as pubs, offices, shops, entertainment venues and transport hubs meet their legal duties.

The guidance has been developed for duty holders to help meet their requirements under the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005, and covers existing non-residential premises without sleeping accommodation, such as offices, shops and entertainment venues. It does not seek to impose new standards, nor is it intended to impose more onerous benchmarks, but is merely a revision and consolidation of existing guidance currently available on the Scottish Government FireLaw webpages.
