Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022

The Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022 introduce new duties under the Fire Safety Order for building owners or managers (responsible persons). More information on these can be found here.

The NFC have also developed a list of frequently asked questions.

You can find further information on your responsibilities here. There are also a number of guidance documents available here and specific guidance on fire doors here.

From January 2023, the Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022 make it a requirement in law for responsible persons of high-rise residential buildings to provide information to fire and rescue services to assist them in planning for and responding to a fire in their building.

A high-rise residential building is defined as a building containing two or more sets of domestic premises, that is at least 18 metres tall or has at least seven storeys.

You can fill in the forms available on these pages.

The NFCC's policy position statement on modern methods of construction can be found here.

Completing the report

The forms should only be completed by persons acting in an authorised capacity on behalf of the Responsible Person of high-rise residential buildings.

If you are a resident and/or leaseholder who has identified concerns with your building, in the first instance you should contact the Responsible Person for your building. If you want to report a fire safety complaint, do not use the above form – instead, please contact us via Fire.Safety@lincolnshire.gov.uk.
