Does the law apply to me?
Article 17 of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRO/FSO) makes it a legal requirement to ensure that fire resisting doors and escape doors are correctly installed and adequately maintained in order for them to be fit for purpose.
The authorities have the power to enforce the RRO/FSO and do prosecute or even close buildings down where breaches are discovered.
