Fraser Fire & Safety Scottish Fire Safety Regulations Feb 2022

New Fire Safety Regulations to be enforced in Feb 2022

New Fire Safety standards that were due to come into force next year (Feb 2020) are now to be put back until February 2022.  All homes in Scotland must comply to the legislation being introduced by The Scottish Government.


From February 2022, every home must:

- a smoke alarm in the living room and in circulation spaces such as hallways and landings

- a heat alarm in every kitchen

- all alarms ceiling mounted and interlinked (note these can be linked remotely)

- a carbon monoxide alarm where there are fixed combustion appliances, such as boilers and wood burners

Private rented property and new builds already have this standard in place, but from February 2022, the rules will be extended to all homes in Scotland.

The delay was put in place due to the difficulties in complying during the coronavirus pandemic; it has been welcomed by homeowners.




From February 2022, every home must:

Steve Fraser, from Fraser Fire & Safety, comments:

"This new legislation has been introduced to improve safety in households, which can only be a good thing, but the timing has been difficult.  Even by putting compliance off for a year will be a tough target to meet by homeowners.  We are fully expecting demand to soar in this area over the next 12-14 months and so have come up with a system to capture information electronically and assess properties virtually, which helps to keep costs down for our customers and saves them time.  We are encouraging homeowners to book an assessment now and to schedule in any necessary installations to avoid disappointment."
