BS 9999 - The essential fire safety standard is being revised

Fire safety standards exist to reduce risks and help save lives. They also mitigate other impacts of fire, including those of business continuity, heritage and the environment.

The recommendations and guidance given in BS 9991 and BS 9999 are intended to safeguard the lives of building occupants and fire-fighters. These are key fire safety standards, while BS 9999 focuses on non-residential buildings, BS 9991 covers residential buildings.

Both standards provide recommendations on how organizations can meet the requirements of fire safety legislation through design, taking flexible and practical approaches. They also give recommendations and guidance on the design, management and use of buildings to achieve reasonable standards of fire safety for all people in and around buildings.

BS 9999 is currently being revised to reflect the changes to building and construction of the last few years. Keep your suite of fire safety standards up-to-date and pre-order the new edition BS 9999.
