The Scottish Government (2019) says that it works closely with the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and are committed to achieving improved fire safety. The existing high standard required in the private rented sector and of new build properties has been extended to all homes.
So, what does this mean for your home?
You will need:
Alarms may be hard-wired, or tamper proof long-life lithium battery powered, and should
also be interlinked – if an alarm sounds in the kitchen, it might not be heard elsewhere in
The standard comes into force in February 2021, however we hope that most people, recognising the safety benefits, will take action sooner.
