Do exit doors require door closers?

As self employed H+S Adviser/Consultant, I have been asked by a small client about fire doors.

Whilst he has swing shut and self closing fire doors in the office, the push-bar fire exit doors have no closing mechanism.

1. Are the swing shut and self closers in the office correct?

2. Does the exit door need a self closer?

1. All fire doors require self closing devices however you can have hold open device on certain fire doors depending on their location.

2. Final exit doors are not fire doors and therefore do not require self closers.
