Fire Safety Legislation
UK fire safety legislation applies to businesses, HMOs and other rental properties including blocks of flats as well as public buildings. Once installed, like any electrical equipment and systems, emergency lighting and fire detection systems need regular checking, testing and maintaining. Your emergency lighting needs to be checked at least once per year. Your fire detection system must be serviced twice per year. In both cases, the testing and servicing must be carried out by a competent person.
