Unlimited fines for fire safety breaches
Building owners could face unlimited fines if they breach fire safety rules, according to an announcement form the Home Office.
The new measures will come into force as part of the new Building Safety Bill.
The Bill will also create the first national Building Safety Regulator and overhaul the way buildings in scope of the new regime are designed, built and managed when occupied.
The new measures will also include a requirement for fire risk assessments to be recorded for each building and improve the way information is handed over throughout a building’s lifetime.
