Division 2 Fire safety schedules
168   Fire safety schedules
(cf clause 80C of EP&A Regulation 1994)
(1)  When:
(a)  granting a development consent for a change of building use (other than a complying development certificate) in circumstances in which no building work is proposed by the applicant for the consent and no building work is required by the consent authority, or
(b)  issuing a complying development certificate for the erection of a building (other than a certificate that relates only to fire link conversion) or for a change of building use, or
(c)  issuing a construction certificate for proposed building work (other than a certificate that relates only to fire link conversion), or
(d)  giving a fire safety order in relation to building premises,
the person doing so must issue a schedule (a fire safety schedule) specifying the fire safety measures (both current and proposed) that should be implemented in the building premises.
(2)  In the case of a fire safety order in respect of which a further order is made under section 121R of the Act, the fire safety schedule is to be issued when the further order is given.
(3)  A fire safety schedule:
(a)  must deal with the whole of the building, not merely the part of the building to which the development consent, complying development certificate, construction certificate or fire safety order relates, and
(b)  must include:
(i)  such of the fire safety measures currently implemented in the building premises, and
(ii)  such of the fire safety measures proposed or required to be implemented in the building premises,
as are statutory fire safety measures, and
(c)  must distinguish between:
(i)  the fire safety measures currently implemented in the building premises, and
(ii)  the fire safety measures proposed or required to be implemented in the building premises, and
(d)  must identify each measure that is a critical fire safety measure and the intervals (being intervals of less than 12 months) at which supplementary fire safety statements must be given to the council in respect of each such measure, and
(e)  must specify the minimum standard of performance for each fire safety measure included in the schedule.
(4)  A copy of the fire safety schedule must be attached to (and is taken to form part of) the relevant development consent, complying development certificate, construction certificate or fire safety order and for the purposes of an appeal forms part of the development consent or construction certificate.
(5)  An earlier fire safety schedule is superseded by a later fire safety schedule, and ceases to have effect when the later fire safety schedule is issued.
168A   Conversion of fire alarm communication links
(1)  This clause applies to a complying development certificate or a construction certificate that relates only to fire link conversion.
(2)  A person issuing such a certificate must also issue:
(a)  if there is a current fire safety schedule for the building concerned, a schedule (a fire link conversion schedule) for the new fire alarm communication link, or
(b)  in any other case, a fire safety schedule dealing only with the new fire alarm communication link.
(3)  A fire link conversion schedule or fire safety schedule issued under this clause:
(a)  must specify the minimum standard of performance for the new fire alarm communication link, and
(b)  if the new fire alarm communication link is a critical fire safety measure, must identify the link as such and specify the intervals (being intervals of less than 12 months) at which supplementary fire safety statements must be given to the council.
(4)  If a fire link conversion schedule is issued, a copy of the schedule must be attached to the current fire safety schedule for the building concerned and the copy is taken, for the purposes of this Regulation, to form part of the fire safety schedule.
Note.
 This means that when the current fire safety schedule is updated, the updated fire safety schedule must incorporate not only the current fire safety schedule but also the fire link conversion schedule.
(5)  Clause 168 (4) applies to a fire link conversion schedule and a fire safety schedule issued under this clause.
