BS 9999:2008 is the fire safety code of practice for building design, management and use. The standard outlines ways to meet fire safety legislation through a more flexible approach to design. BS 9999:2008 provides a risk-based structure that takes varying human factors into account, including improving emergency exit access for disabled people. The standard can be used in and around existing buildings, at design stage for new buildings or extensions, and also applies to alterations, extensions and changes of use of an existing building. It also provides an assessment tool to ensure fire safety strategy remains robust.
BS 9999:2008 is based on government guidance and provides a best practice framework for fire safety. The standard outlines ways to test all aspects of your fire strategy, including easy access to exits, to ensure the safety of people in and around the buildings. This includes how to manage fire safety throughout the entire life cycle of the building – starting with design or re-design, to fire system assessment, and maintaining a fire detection system. BS 9999:2008 also gives guidance on training employees in fire safety, organising an efficient evacuation plan and allocating leadership responsibilities. The recommendations and guidance given in this British Standard are intended to safeguard the lives of building occupants and fire-fighters.
BS 9999 replaces DD 9999. The national standard provides more information on improving accessibility for disabled people in fire safety design and management plans. The BS 9999 series reflects the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act and the principles of inclusive design. Fire safety design strategies for extreme events such as terrorist actions are not covered.
