Enforcement Register

Ensuring compliance with statutory duties.

We take our responsibility to enforce fire safety regulations seriously. We operate under the authority of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, ensuring compliance with statutory duties on behalf of the Buckinghamshire & Milton Keynes Fire Authority. 

In carrying out these duties, we adhere to The Regulator’s Code, aiming for transparency and fairness. If you feel we haven’t met these standards, please refer to our complaints procedure.

All formal fire safety Notices, including Alterations, Enforcement, and Prohibition Notices, are recorded on a Public Register in accordance with the Environment and Safety Information Act 1988.

We now utilise the new National Enforcement Register provided by the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC).

After the statutory appeal period of 21 days, we make efforts to update the Public Register. If a legal appeal is lodged against a Notice, it won’t be recorded until a decision is reached. Successful appeals result in no entry on the Public Register. Appeals must be made to the local Magistrates’ Court. 

Please note, an appeal against a Prohibition Notice does not suspend the Notice. Entries remain on the Register for at least three years from the date of service.
