Enforcement Notice Register

As part of our work to keep Derbyshire safe, Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service (DFRS) visits, inspects and audits fire safety measures in non-domestic premises. 

What is the public register?

As part of our work to keep Derbyshire safe, Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service (DFRS) visits, inspects and audits fire safety measures in non-domestic premises. If we discover circumstances that could make premises unsafe, we can take action. This includes issuing legal notices, which require the responsible person to take action, usually within a specified time, to ensure the premises are safe.

As an authority responsible for enforcing the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, DFRS is required by law (the Environment and Safety Information Act 1988) to maintain a public register which gives some information about these notices.

Notices included on the register are:

  • Alterations notices
  • Enforcement notices
  • Prohibition Notices

DFRS publish the required information on the National Enforcement Register hosted on the National Fire Chiefs Council website on behalf of all fire authorities. This provides a single point of contact to view notices served, either on an authority by authority basis, or nationally.

How the public register works

The register contains details of notices in calendar years.

Each entry on the register provides sufficient detail to convey the substance of the notice to which it relates, as required by the Environment and Safety Information Act 1988.

Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service is unlikely to provide full copies of notices, as they are generally exempt information by virtue of Section 30(1)(b) and Section 31(1)(a) and (b) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

How long is information held for?

Entries will be held on our register for a period of five years, Notices served on individuals under the age of 18 will be removed sooner.

The information about Derbyshire premises held on the public register is managed by the Protection Department of Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service.
