The assessment contains a scoring system, by which the overall risk is assessed by the housing authority, who enforce this legislation. Unfortunately, there is no recognized national guidance on the standards of fire safety that need to be adopted in assessing an HMO under the HHSRS. A number of local authorities, often working in partnership with neighbouring local authorities, do produce local guidance.

Under the Fire Safety Order, the relevant article applies only where the responsible person (or any other person) has failed to comply with any provision of the Order. The determination then relates only to disputes regarding the measures necessary for compliance. In Scotland, Section 67 of the Fire (Scotland) Act permits the determination route to be followed where an enforcing authority considers that a person has failed to comply with any of the Chapter 1 duties, but the person and the enforcing authority cannot agree on the action that is required to be taken to comply with that duty.

52). The significance of this simple model, in terms of fire prevention, is that fire cannot occur if any one of the three components is removed. Of course, it is not normally possible to remove, or sufficiently reduce, the oxygen content of the atmosphere. However, by keeping doors and windows closed, it is possible for a fire to become starved of oxygen and self-extinguish as a result. This is particularly the case if the enclosure in which fire occurs is relatively small. ) Complete removal of all fuel is equally impracticable although, as discussed in Chapter 6, measures such as removal of waste, security of flammableliquids storage and the avoidance of unnecessary storage, all contribute to the prevention of fire.
