Depending on the size and use of your premises, you must appoint one or more competent persons to carry out any of the preventive and protective measures required by The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) order 2005. A competent person is someone with adequate training, knowledge and experience to be able to implement these measures properly.

The responsible person (property owner, company director etc) must, where necessary, nominate competent persons to implement those measures and ensure that the number of such persons, their training and the equipment available to them are adequate, taking into account the size of, and the specific hazards involved in, the premises concerned...

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, Section 13

A competent person must be appointed to carry out fire fighting duties (where appropriate), contact the Emergency Services, and assist in evacuations. This person would typically be a “Fire Warden”. Failure to carry out these responsibilities may result in enforcement by the Enforcing Authority through the actions of an Inspector. Conviction for failing to comply may lead to a penalty consisting of a fine or up to two years’ imprisonment.
