Fire Safety Certificates (FSC) are important documents that show that adequate escape facilities are available within a building. A Fire Safety Certificate will also show that the building is designed and constructed so as to limit and prevent the spread of the fire. All buildings are required to comply with Part B (Fire) of the Building Regulations 1997 – 2010.

Under current Building Regulations, Fire Safety Certificates are required for all new commercial properties or in the case of existing buildings, if a material change of use, material alteration or increase in floor area is proposed.
