REGULATORY REFORM, ENGLAND AND WALES

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005

Made

7th June 2005

Coming into force in accordance with article 1

Whereas—–

(a)the First Secretary of State (“the Secretary of State”) consulted(1)—

(i)such organisations as appeared to him to be representative of interests substantially affected by his proposals for this Order;

(ii)the statutory bodies, and such organisations as appeared to him to be representative of those bodies, to whose functions his proposals relate;

(iii)the Law Commission;

(iv)the National Assembly for Wales; and

(v)such other persons as he considered appropriate;

(b)as a result of that consultation it appeared to the Secretary of State that it was appropriate to vary part of his proposals;

(c)following the consultation mentioned in recital (a) the Secretary of State considered it appropriate to proceed with the making of this Order;

(d)a document containing the Secretary of State’s proposals was laid before Parliament as required by section 6 of the Regulatory Reform Act 2001(2) and the period for Parliamentary consideration under section 8 of that Act expired;

(e)the Secretary of State had regard to the representations made during that period and in particular to the 11th Report of the Regulatory Reform Committee of the House of Commons(3) and to the 27th Report of the Delegated Powers and Regulatory Reform Committee of the House of Lords(4);

(f)a draft of this Order was laid before Parliament with a statement giving details of those representations and the changes to the Secretary of State’s proposals in the light of them;

(g)the draft was approved by resolution of each House of Parliament;

(h)this Order modifies a function of the National Assembly for Wales and the Assembly has agreed that it be made;

(i)the Secretary of State is of the opinion that this Order does not remove any necessary protection or prevent any person from continuing to exercise any right or freedom which he might reasonably expect to continue to exercise; and

(j)this Order creates burdens affecting persons in the carrying on of certain activities, and the Secretary of State is of the opinion that—

(i)the provisions of this Order, taken as a whole, strike a fair balance between the public interest and the interests of the persons affected by the burdens being created; and

(ii)the extent to which this Order removes or reduces one or more burdens, or has other beneficial effects for persons affected by the burdens imposed by the existing law, makes it desirable for this Order to be made;

Now therefore the First Secretary of State, in exercise of the powers conferred by section 1 of the Regulatory Reform Act 2001, hereby makes the following Order:

(1)

A consultation paper “A consultation document on the reform of fire safety legislation” was published by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister in July 2002. Copies may be obtained from the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, P.O. Box 236, Wetherby, West Yorkshire, LS23 7NB.
