The Regulator of Social Housing sets standards that registered providers are required to meet - including that a landlord meets all applicable statutory requirements that provide for the health and safety of the occupants of their homes. Failure to comply with a standard may result in the regulator publishing a Regulatory Judgement or a Regulatory Notice depending on the nature of the failing.
In relation to fire safety, there was one Regulatory Notice against a housing association in 2017/18. There were five Regulatory Notices in 2018/19 (four housing associations and a local authority)
From 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020 there were 13 Regulatory Notices issued in total (six housing associations and seven local authorities). In addition, there were 2 Regulatory judgements issued due to health and safety concerns, including fire safety.
From 1 April 2020 to date, no Regulatory Notices have been issued relating to fire safety.
