Our enforcement public register

The Environment and Safety Information Act 1988

Good fire safety management saves lives and protects property

 

This act requires Fire Services and Local Authorities to maintain a register of information concerning the issue of prohibition, alteration and enforcement notices, which must be open
to inspection by the public free of charge.

Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service issue these types of notices under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. Publication of this Register also fulfills our responsibilities under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Alterations Notices

These are served if the enforcing authority is of the opinion that the premises may constitute a serious risk to relevant persons if an alteration is made. Such a notice requires that the enforcing authority is contacted prior to making any alterations to the premises.

Enforcement Notices

These are served if the enforcing authority is of the opinion that the responsible person has failed to comply with any of the provisions of the legislation. They are only served in cases when there is a serious failure or numerous less serious failures are evident. An enforcement notice will have a date by which compliance of the items within the notice is required.

Prohibition Notices

These are served if the enforcing authority is of the opinion that there is a risk to relevant persons so serious in case of fire that the use of all or part of the premises should be restricted or prohibited.
