The sanitary authorities are concerned only with the supervision of house drainage, and the construction and maintenance of local sewers discharging into the main system. 0 The cost of maintenance exceeds £, annually; contributions towards this are made by the Treasury and the fire insurance companies. Maintenance of land and buildings is often categorised as either planned preventative maintenance (PPM) or reactive maintenance. You should consider the balance between PPM and reactive maintenance. The Domestic Fire Safety (Wales) Measure received Royal Assent in April This was supported by Wales’ three fire and rescue services, the Chief Fire Officers Association (UK), Fire Brigades Union and the Fire Sprinkler Network. The Measure, which precedes any regulation, does not affect England. Copies of the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations and their Schedules Statutory Instruments ( No. and No. ) are available from HMSO and via the links below. These apply in England and Wales.
