Enforcement Register

Enforcement Register

Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service (BFRS) enforces the statutory duties imposed by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order on behalf of the Buckinghamshire & Milton Keynes Fire Authority.

In discharging these duties, BFRS adheres to the principles of The Regulator’s Code. If you feel we have not achieved this, please refer to our complaints procedure, which can be found here.

All formal fire safety Notices (Alterations, Enforcement and Prohibition Notices) served by Buckinghamshire & Milton Keynes Fire Authority under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order will be recorded on a Public Register in accordance with the Environment and Safety Information Act 1988. The register is available for public inspection via the link below.

Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service utilises the new National Enforcement Register here which is operated by the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC).

At present, not all historic records have been moved to the new register, so if you have an enquiry about previous formal enforcement action taken by Buckinghamshire & Milton Keynes Fire Authority, please get in touch through our contact us page.

Once the statutory appeal period of 21 days has elapsed, every effort will be made to ensure the Public Register is updated. Where a legal appeal is lodged against a Notice, the Notice will not be recorded on the Public Register until an appeal decision is reached.  In cases where an appeal is successful, no entry onto the Public Register will be made. All legal appeals to formal Notices served must be undertaken by way of complaint for an order to the local Magistrates’ Court.

An appeal against a Prohibition Notice does not suspend the Notice.

Entries will be kept on the Register for a period of not less than three years from the date on which the Notice was served.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the fire safety provisions in your local area, please contact

Further information regarding the fire safety legislation relevant to your workplace can be found here.
