The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 came into force on 1 October 2006 replacing previous legislation.

It affects all forms of sleeping accommodation including everything in the Guest Accommodation scheme not previously covered i.e. those sleeping one to six guests. In relation to self-catering properties - it does not affect single private dwellings, but applies to blocks of flats etc. A house converted into holiday flats or for holiday letting will need to comply - as would a private house with B&B accommodation included in it.
