Regulatory Reform Order
The RRO, which became law on 1 October 2006, has imposed specific obligations on Landlords to ensure commercial properties meet current legislation in respect of Fire Safety, based upon a competent fire assessment to identify, manage and reduce the risk of fire, with individual persons within an organization being made responsible, under law, for the undertaking of such assessment and compliance with its recommendations and being liable to prosecution if recommendations are not actioned and maintained and if evidence of such cannot be provided.
The Fabrick Housing Group are amongst those leading the countries network of social housing organisations, in the strategical planning and management of their commitment to comply with the requirements of the RRO. Interseal UK Limited, in ‘partnership’ are pleased to be supporting that strategy through the surveying, reporting, recommending and undertaking of remedial and new firestopping and compartmentation works to ensure compliance with building regulation document B and RRO legislation, for their portfolio of properties.
