FIRE SAFETY LAW

Fire safety legislation in the UK is enacted differently under the three jurisdictions of England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. These differences are nothing to worry about as they are largely identical in terms of where they apply and what people have to do to comply with them.

This is a gentle introduction to the subject and is not a substitute for more detailed government advice, which is referenced towards the end of this document. The specific pieces of legislation to which the document refers are also listed towards the end.
