Our Fire Safety England Regulations 2022 course explains the purpose of the Fire Safety Regulations (England) 2022 and their role in protecting people in domestic premises. The course will make you aware of the need for the regulations and the key duties placed on owners and managers of multi-occupied residential buildings.

New Fire Safety England Regulations 2022 were introduced in England to implement the specific recommendations of the Grenfell Inquiry. The regulations apply to all buildings in England that comprise two or more domestic premises. The regulations do not apply in Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. If you live in these regions, we recommend finding a suitable online fire safety course instead.

The course has been updated to cover new fire safety guidance that came into effect in October 2023.
