Emergency Evacuation Information Sharing consultation – member briefing

22 June 2022

The Home Office is currently consulting on Emergency Evacuation Information Sharing (EEIS), which seeks views on new proposals to support the fire safety of residents who would need support to evacuate in an emergency situation.

It follows previous consultations on evacuation proposals, including the consultation on Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans (PEEPs) which we responded to last year.

The proposals set out new requirements for the established Responsible Persons of buildings, and looks to implement some of the recommendations set out by the Grenfell Tower Public Inquiry.

This briefing provides a summary of the government’s proposals and its calls for further evidence to fully assess this and other potential approaches.

The NHF will be submitting a sector response to the consultation. To help shape our response we are seeking views from members in response to the questions and proposals outlined in our briefing.

We are asking housing associations to get in touch and share their views by no later than Friday 22 July ahead of the 10 August deadline for submissions to the Home Office.

To further discuss the proposals set out in the consultation, the Home Office is holding a number of virtual workshops where officials will share how they envisage the proposals to work, and answer any questions. Attendees will also have the opportunity to share their views on the proposals.

If you would like to attend a workshop, please get in touch with the Home Office stating which of the following dates you would like to attend:

  • Monday 4 July, 4-5:30pm
  • Friday 15 July, 11am-12:30pm
  • Wednesday 27 July, 5-6:30pm
