Who we are

Written by the Fire Protection Association (FPA), the Joint Code of Practice (JCoP) provides the construction industry with best practice guidance for fire safety on sites to ensure the risk to both site operatives and the building/structure under construction are minimised.

The Joint Code of Practice was launched and first published in 1992. It has evolved over the years to ensure it captures the guidance driven by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), latest test standards and new technology, and it is currently supported by industry recognised Groups and Bodies such as:

  • Build UK
  • Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA)
  • Construction Insurance Risk Engineers Group (CIREG)
  • Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE)
  • National Federation of Builders (NFB)
  • Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA)
  • Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS)
  • Scottish Building Federation (SBF)

JCoP Edition 10.1

The current version of the Joint Code of Practice (edition 10.1) was published in January 2023 and is applicable to all new construction projects with an insurance requirement for compliance to the Joint Code of Practice edition 10.1.


HSE Guidance – HSG168

Many of the clauses within the JCoP document have been derived from the guidance within the Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) own fire safety document HSG168 – Fire Safety in Construction Work. One example of this being the newly added stacked cabin clause (13.6) within JCoP edition 10.1 aligning with clause 6 of Appendix 1 in HSG168.
