Free webinar – A Legal Perspective on E-mobility Devices, The Building Safety Act and the Fire Safety Act with metroSTOR
As Lithium-ion battery-powered mobility devices continue to cause death and injury in residential buildings across the globe, the
team here at metroSTOR continue with our mission to raise awareness with UK social landlords and fire safety practitioners.
Our objective is to provide a clear summary of the risks and any legislation or statutory guidance that may be applicable along with solutions that can be employed to reduce the risk without impacting on residents’ quality of life.

to bringing you the latest top-level legal advice on the storage and charging of e-mobility devices, particularly in light of the recent introduction of the Building Safety Act and the Fire Safety Act.
