FIA has just produced The Status of PAS 79-2 & LGA Fire safety in purpose-built blocks of flats guide.
PAS 79-2 was originally published in December 2020. It was produced at the request of the housing sector, who considered that there was a need for dedicated guidance on fire risk assessments for housing premises, and for a “tailor-made” template on which to record the significant findings of these fire risk assessments.
BSI have now permanently withdrawn PAS 79-2, pending conversion of the PAS into a full British Standard. This unprecedented situation has caused significant confusion within the fire safety and housing sectors. A BSI publication is normally withdrawn when it is obsolete or incorrect.
This guide has been produced by FIA to assist members who may experience the confusion described above.
