Approved Document B survey launched to determine fire strategy

28 July 2017

Launch of a survey has been announced by the Fire Sector Federation (FSF) to shape future policies for the UK's fire strategy.

Developed over the last few months, the survey is designed to assist the FSF in understanding industry views about the future of Approved Document B (Fire Safety).

Independent research organisation NBS Research was commissioned last March to assist the FSF to prepare for the survey.

It has also worked with a 12-person steering group to drive the project forward and the FSF is now calling for responses to the survey, which can be accessed here.

The federation states that it believes the survey will "be used as an important and collective tool to gather specific feedback and views on the practical guidance in Approved Document B to meet the fire safety requirements of the Building Regulations in England".

Following analysis of the survey results by the NBS and FSF, these will be used to form the basis of a submission to the DCLG to assist those responsible for ensuring Building Regulations and Approved Document B are as effective as possible.
