The PAS 9980:2022 Code of Practice
Multi-occupancy, multi-storey buildings are vulnerable to the risk of fire spreading through the external walls. To understand whether your building is at a higher risk of such fires, it’s best to perform a survey. That’s why we offer FRAEW services for building managers, owners, and architects in London and nearby areas. We have a fully-insured team of experts, including fire engineers and façade inspectors. Our team performs inspections and assessments according to the guidelines mentioned in the PAS 9980:2022 code of practice.
FRAEW According To The PAS 9980:2022 Code of Practice
Performing a fire risk appraisal of a building’s external walls is important because it considers the external walls when accounting for overall fire risk. Of course, this creates the need for a methodology based on which assessors can perform the survey. The PAS 9980:2022 lays down necessary guidelines and criteria that assessors can follow when evaluating the fire risk of external walls.
Specifically, it provides a five-step process for each appraisal.
- Step 1: Assess the need for a complete FRAEW
- Step 2: Compile information to evaluate the external walls
- Step 3: Find and group significant risk factors
- Step 4: Look at how each group influences the overall fire risk
- Step 5: Derive a rating from the evaluation analysis
The PAS 9980:2022 also provides a rating scale that ranges from low risk to high risk. High risk situations require immediate action due to a major threat of fire spreading via the external walls. Low risk implies that no major changes are required.
