PAS 79-2: 2020 Fire risk assessment, Housing, Code of practice is being revised by BSI as a British Standard. The PAS has been withdrawn whilst the British Standard is in development.
BSI will facilitate the consensus-based and stakeholder-led development of the British Standard in line with emerging government guidance and legislation. The standard will be developed under the management of BSI’s FSH/14 technical committee, which is responsible for the development of National standards for fire safety precautions in residential and commercial buildings, fire risk assessment, and fire risk management systems.
A version of the withdrawn PAS is available on the BSI website. Information relating to vulnerable persons is being considered as part of the development of the new British Standard. It has been redacted from the withdrawn PAS.
