Failure to meet fire safety and prevention measures may see the three establishments temporarily closed down for a period of six months, until their compliance with the regulations is guaranteed. Proceedings have been initiated against Carpe Diem, Shoko and Pachá, which now have a period in which to challenge the action.

Inspection campaign at nightlife venues

Inspection services in Ciutat Vella embarked on an inspection campaign with the city police in March to check safety and prevention measures at discos and music bars in the district. The campaign began by sending 42 information letters to various establishments, making them aware of the inspections.

Inspection teams specifically checked fire safety and prevention measures, which include things such as evacuation routes, signage, emergency exit systems and fire protection equipment.
