The Fire Safety Regulations (NI) 2010 became effective 15th November 2010 bringing N. Ireland into line with UK fire safety legislation, whereby it will be a LEGAL requirement that all non-domestic premises must have in place a written fire risk assessment. This must be undertaken by someone who is considered knowledgeable and competent, i.e. someone who has sufficient training, experience, knowledge or qualifications
The N.I. Fire & Rescue is responsible for enforcement of the new legislation and has wide ranging powers including enforcement notices and ultimately prosecution
