FSF consults on retail guidance

The Enforcement Workstream of the Fire Sector Federation has released for open consultation a draft document on Compartmentation in Shops.

The document aims to to assist designers to meet the functional requirements of the building regulations and to demonstrate compliance with the Fire Safety Order. It is also recommends that building control bodies and fire & rescue services may use this guidance when assessing designs that are not deemed to be strictly code compliant, to help them achieve a consistent interpretation and implementation of the Building Regulations and Fire Safety Order.

The document will be out for open consultation for a three month period. Comments are invited from any interested organisations or individuals on the text, suggested additional text or on the document as a whole. All comments must be returned to the Fire Sector Federation by 10 June 2016.
