Overview

This standard is about auditing and advising on the risks associated with locations that are regulated and/or licensed.  Individuals will work within their personal level of responsibility and authority in terms of providing advice, information and dealing with regulatory and/or licensing matters. The context of this standard may vary in different Authority areas due to the regulatory requirements therein.

There are two elements

  1. Determine risks in respect of the specific risks
  2. Recommend controls to manage the specific risks

Target group

The standard is recommended for Practitioners, i.e. anyone who is employed or contracted to work with others in an organisation - managers, staff, trade unions, owners and/or occupiers - to ensure that, within the scope of their responsibility, suitable and sufficient fire safety arrangements are made and maintained.

It is also appropriate for Regulators, i.e. anyone who has the responsibility for ensuring the requirements of Fire Safety and associated regulation are being met through cooperation or enforcement.
