Regulation 7 of the Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022 requires responsible persons of high-rise residential buildings to undertake monthly routine checks of specific fire safety equipment. The equipment covered by this requirement is:
Where faults with any of this equipment are identified, the Responsible Person must take steps to rectify the fault. If the fault cannot be rectified within 24 hours, then the fault must be reported to the fire and rescue service using the forms below. The fire and rescue service must be informed once the fault has been rectified.
This information will assist fire and rescue services by highlighting faults with equipment, which both residents and firefighters may rely on for their safety, so that it can be factored into their operational response.
The forms should only be completed by persons acting in an authorised capacity on behalf of the Responsible Person. 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 please do not use this form, contact us directly instead.
