This Published Document provides guidance on the use of BS 7974:2001 as a framework for an engineering approach to the achievement of fire safety in buildings. It gives guidance on the application of scientific and engineering principles to the protection of people and property from fire. It also gives a structured approach to assessing the effectiveness of the total fire safety system in achieving the design objectives.

It provides guidance on the design and assessment of fire safety measures in buildings. It provides some alternative approaches to existing codes and guides for fire safety and also allows the effect of departures from more prescriptive codes to be evaluated.

It recognizes that a range of alternative and complementary fire protection strategies can achieve the design objectives.

This Published Document is intended to provide a framework for a flexible but formalized approach to fire safety design that can also be readily assessed by the statutory authorities.

It is intended that this Published Document, when used by persons suitably qualified and experienced in fire safety engineering, will provide a means of establishing acceptable levels of fire safety economically and without imposing unnecessary constraints on other aspects of building design.
