Scope Of Standards

Work is underway to develop an initial activity framework which aims to show the different activities of fire and rescue services that enable them to deliver their service to the public. From this framework the Board aim to show the breadth and range of areas to which professional Standards will apply – the scope of professional Standards.

At this stage it is not envisaged that absolutely all activities may have a specific professional Standard, in some areas a professional Standard may cover a number of activities or areas.

The completion of work on this framework will allow the Board to achieve a number of things including planning the development of a prioritised work programme over the coming years, clarifying what is in and out of scope along with clarifying where work is already underway.
