From the 23 January 2023 The Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022 will make it a LEGAL REQUIREMENT for the responsible person of all multi-occupancy residential buildings in England at over 11 metres in height to –
+ Undertake quarterly checks of all fire doors (including self-closing devices) in the common parts; and,
+ Undertake – on a best endeavour basis – annual checks of all flat entrance doors (including self-closing devices) that lead onto a building’s common parts.
The minimum requirements for inspections of fire doors are for the responsible person to identify and record any obvious damage or issues.
