Executive Summary

1. This consultation seeks views on possible changes to standards required for fire and smoke alarms in Scottish homes. We propose extending the current minimum safety standards in private rented housing to all other tenures. We believe that where possible housing standards should be consistent across tenures. We have decided to prioritise this consultation so that it can contribute to our wider response to the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower.
