Fire Suppression Systems

Ventilation

Technical Guidance Document #018

The Regulatory Reform Act loosely referred to as the Fire Reform Order is a statutory (Legally binding) regulation. Scotland and Northern Ireland have their own fire safety legislation.

This is intended to move the point of responsibility from the Local Fire Brigade to the operator (not necessarily the owner) of the restaurant, shop, etc., requiring him / her to produce a Fire Risk Assessment (FRA) for the premises.

Heavy fines and, in some extreme cases, custodial sentences have already been served on operators who fail to observe and comply with this requirement.

This FRA will invariably require a fire suppression system if, for example, there is a deep fat fryer involved.

Technical Guidance Document #011

This document covers what the Gas Regulations say about maintenance.

The ceda Technical Steering Group has been concerned for some time about a lack of clarity in the gas regulations relating to regular maintenance of catering equipment and has therefore introduced a new initiative to help members understand the regulations and more importantly to help them explain them to their customers to both ensure a safe working environment and generate income for members.
