C.S.Todd & Associates Limited (CSTA) has been awarded a contract by the Home Office to produce new fire safety guidance and update existing guides as part of a wider overhaul of guidance which supports the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

The guidance is intended to support the laying of any secondary legislation made under the Fire Safety Order to implement relevant Grenfell Tower Inquiry Phase 1 recommendations following the outcome of the Fire Safety Consultation. This guidance is due to be published in Spring 2021 when it is intended that the secondary legislation will be laid before Parliament.  

The existing guides to be updated are:
• A Short Guide to Making your Premises Safe from Fire;
• Fire Safety in Purpose-Built Blocks of Flats.
• Fire Safety Risk Assessment Checklist;
• Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 Guidance Note no.1;

In addition to ensuring the guides are consistent with any amendments via the Fire Safety Bill and any secondary legislation implementing the Grenfell Phase 1 report recommendations, CSTA are tasked with improving the guides.

As part of the process, CSTA will be undertaking extensive stakeholder consultation. If you wish to contact CSTA regarding this work, please email
