Scottish fire safety regime: final review

08 January 2019

Article: 53/107

The Scottish Government has published the conclusions and recommendations of the review of the Scottish Fire Safety Regime established by the Building and Fire Safety Ministerial Working Group.

The purpose of the review was to ensure that the fire safety regime and regulatory framework in Scotland provides comprehensive protection to residents of high rise domestic buildings and is robust and fully fit for purpose. The focus has been reviewing existing fire safety legislation and associated frameworks to identify and recommend whether any changes or improvements are required to the legislation in order to improve, if necessary, fire safety for those who live in high rise domestic properties in Scotland.
