PAS 79-1 AND PAS 79-2
« on: December 10, 2020, 12:34:17 AM »
The PDFs are now available to purchase from BSI. They became available on 7 December, the very day that was in a programme set in October 2019, despite all the challenges of 2020. Hard copy available in the next few days. This represented extremely hard work by the BSI editor and a really good steering group, who ploughed through 1,200 public comments, and who comprised reps from the following:
?   BSI Consumer and Public Interest Network
?   CBRE PMFM UK
?   Fire Industry Association
?   Institution of Fire Engineers
?   Lend Lease
?   Metro Safety Ltd
?   National Fire Chiefs Council
?   National Residential Landlords Association
?   National Security Inspectorate
?   National Social Housing Fire Safety Group
?   NHS England/NHS Improvements
?   Savills
?   Scottish Fire and Rescue Service
?   University College London

My thanks got to all of the above, who gave willing of their time.

By the way, pay little heed to those who quote from it out of context. Read the codes of practice for yourself.

Just to bump this to the top again following my hat doffing in another thread since this is far more important.
By the way, only 25% increase in cost of the document in 13 years. I wonder how that compares with the price assessors are getting over the same period?

They shall be an interesting read, just waiting for our EHS subscription system to get them up (they have a slight lag with new BS) and see what's new and rush to get it incorporated before NSI come to renew our BAFE!

I just hope everyone uses them correctly and don't do a BS9999 on them and be too selective on which bits they choose to follow/adopt!
