Secure Information Boxes

Secure Information Boxes

July 11, 2022

It would be advisable that all multiple occupancy premises have what’s known as Secure Information Boxes (aka Premises Information Boxes), however; The Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022 will make it a legal requirement from 23 January 2023 for existing high-rise residential buildings at least 18m in height or at least seven storeys, in England to have a secure information box installed on the premises.

The regulations will require the Responsible Person to install a suitably secure information box in or on their high-rise building. They will also be required to provide the following in the box as a minimum:

  • Their UK contact details
  • The UK contact details of any other person who has the facilities to and is permitted to access the building as the responsible person considers appropriate
  • Copies of the building’s floor plans – which identify specified key fire-fighting equipment
  • A single page block plan – which identifies specified key fire-fighting equipment

Further guidance can be found at the National Fire Chiefs website at https://www.nationalfirechiefs.org.uk/write/MediaUploads/NFCC%20Guidance%20publications/Protection/PIBS_Guide_06-21_V2.pdf

These boxes must be made available to a Fire Officer upon the event of an emergency and should be maintained and their contents kept up to date.
