Fire risk assessments: how often must they be done?
There are no specific time periods in law for how often fire risk assessments must be carried out or reviewed....
If the building’s application has successfully passed our eligibility checks, it will continue through the original process explained here.
However, if the full funding application has not yet been approved or where works have not started, the applicant can choose to undertake a Fire Risk Appraisal of External Walls (FRAEW), conducted by a competent professional, to help inform the scope of works.
Choosing to carry out a FRAEW could mean that works could be more proportionate, minimising potential disruption to residents and leaseholders.
If either full funding has been approved, or your building’s remediation works have started, the applicant needs to continue to follow the original BSF technical requirements for the removal and replacement of unsafe cladding systems. This means that there will be no additional delays at this advanced stage in the process.
