Fire Investigation Fire Standard
Closing date of consultation: Monday 6 December 2021
A draft Fire Investigation Fire Standard is now open for consultation. This has been developed with expert input from the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC) Fire Investigation Committee and is underpinned by both the:
- Code of Practice for Investigators of Fires and Explosions for the Justice Systems in the UK (developed by the National Fire Chiefs Council, Institute of Engineers and UK Association of Fire Investigators); and
- Forensic science providers: codes of practice and conduct
How to participate
For the purposes of this consultation, you are provided with a consultation pack which contains the following:
- The proposed Fire Investigation Fire Standard
- A copy of the consultation questions (allows you to prepare your response in advance before entering your answers online)
You will be asked to provide your name, role, organisation and email address in case of any technical issues or if we need to contact you to clarify anything about your response.
It is not mandatory to respond to all of the questions in the survey; you are welcome to only complete those areas that you have an interest or expertise in.
When you are ready, please start the survey
What happens after the consultation has closed?
All the consultation responses will be considered in December 2021. Should any responses result in significant revisions to the Fire Standard, a further consultation may be initiated.
Following this, the Fire Standard will undergo a quality assurance process before the final Fire Standard is proposed to the Fire Standards Board for approval.
If you have any questions about the consultation process please email [email protected]
