The clue is in the title, and what a title you now have.  The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 defines you as follows: -

3.  In this Order "Responsible Person" means -

(a) in relation to a workplace, the employer, if the workplace is to any extent under his control;

(b) in relation to any premises not falling within paragraph (a);

(i) the person who has control of the premises (as occupier or otherwise) in connection with the carrying on by him of a trade, business or other undertaking (for profit or not); or

(ii) the owner (where the person in control of the premises does not have control in connection with the carrying on by that person of a trade, business or other undertaking.

So, the Responsible Person is the employer, the owner, could also be a manager, supervisor, there are many possible variants, depending on the circumstances within the premises.  The Responsible Person is a person with control of the premises.  In the case of a workplace, this would usually be the employer, but could also be a landlord, a tenant, managing agent.

There can often be more than one responsible person.  Where there is more than one responsible person, each responsible person must ascertain who will be responsible for each area of obligation.

The Responsible Person must carry out, or arrange to have carried out, a suitable and sufficient Fire Risk Assessment.

A Competent Person must be appointed by the Responsible Person to assist.
