Following the Grenfell Tower fire a Ministerial Working Group
recommended the following:
"Changes are needed to the simple guidance on escape. In [new] domestic buildings over 18m there should be two stairways and fire service activated evacuation sounders in each flat"
BS 8629:2019 is a new standard. It is the code of practice for the design, installation, commissioning, and maintenance of evacuation alert systems for use by fire and rescue services in buildings containing flats.
