The only legislation on fire risk assessments is The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 there are also many guides, the one for this situation is Offices and shops and maybe the Factories and warehouses is there is a garage as well.

You could check out http://www.firesafe....ety-order-2005/ for more information.

All my responses only apply to England and Wales and they are an overview of the subject, hopefully it will point you in the right direction and always treat with caution. It is near impossible to give a definitive answer without a physical survey and remember the final decision is the Responsible Person after all it is the RP who will face the judge from the dock it things go pear shaped.


Scotland and Northern Ireland has differing legislation.


I would appreciate feedback to know if my contributions are useful.
