All notices served under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 by Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service will be recorded on our public register in accordance with the Environment and Safety Information Act 1988.
The register is available for public inspection using the links below.
Information relating to notices served will be available on the register within 14 days of expiry of the 21-day statutory appeal period. Where an appeal is made, a notice will not be recorded on the register until a decision on the appeal is final. In cases where the notice is overturned, no entry on the register will be made. Information on any issued notice will be displayed for a minimum of three years even if the notice is complied with.
Definitions of notices:
An alteration notice may be served on the responsible person if the Fire and Rescue Authority is of the opinion that any alterations that may be made to the premises would constitute a serious risk to relevant persons (whether due to features of the premises, their use, and any hazard present or any other circumstances).
An enforcement notice may be served where the Fire and Rescue Authority is of the opinion that the responsible person or other person mentioned in Article 5(3) has failed to comply with any provision of the Fire Safety Order.
A prohibition notice may be served where the Fire and Rescue Authority is of the opinion that the risk to persons in case of fire, is so serious it will be necessary for the Authority to prohibit or restrict the use of parts of the premises until the specified matters have been remedied.
