This guidance sets out the key requirements for managing fire safety in multi-occupied residential buildings. It has been updated to take account of the requirements of the Fire Safety Act 2021 and the Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022. It is not in any way a full statement of what a managing agent should be aware of in respect of fire safety. It also signposts to guidance on best practice where this is available.
