The Building Safety Bill requires Accountable Persons to provide residents of high-rise buildings with information about safety measures in their building. This includes fire safety information that will include the risks to residents identified by the fire risk assessment and the preventative and protective measures in place. Residents will be able to request further safety information from the Accountable Person.
As building owners, housing associations will need to identify an Accountable Person and provide relevant safety information. Residents will be able to request further safety information from the Accountable Person.
