Unlimited fines for fire safety regulations

The UK Government has announced unlimited fines for breaching fire safety orders or obstructing fire inspectors. This is part of a package to tighten fire safety in buildings following the Grenfell fire and including: improving fire safety coordination and clarifying responsibilities, keeping fire safety information over the whole building lifespan, improving fire safety risk assessments, strengthening guidance under Fire Safety Orders to enable failure to respect it to lead to legal proceedings, overall strengthening of enforcement, and increased funding for fire and rescue services.
