Martyn's Law Compliance

The Draft Terrorism (Protection of Premises) Bill, also known as ‘Martyn’s Law ’ is a draft bill expected to become law in 2024 and will enhance public safety by ensuring better preparedness for, and protection from, terrorist attacks. It will mandate, for the first time, who is responsible for considering the risk from a terrorist attack and how they would respond, to reduce harm and save lives. The draft bill is expected to become law in 2024. However, compliance shouldn’t be onerous and is designed to sit alongside existing health and safety obligations. Depending on the premises or event – it may simply involve consulting official guidance, conducting a risk assessment, establishing procedures, and providing any training or equipment, such as first aid or signage, to be able to carry out those procedures.
