Fire Investigation Development Workbook Consultation

The second edition of the competency framework document for Fire Investigation was published in July 2021. It aims to support Fire and Rescue Service organisations with a structured approach to the induction, training, qualification and maintenance of competence required to support fire investigations within the FRS.

To support this,  a development workbook process has been produced to support new fire investigators and their development through to being deemed competent by their respective FRS. Please review the supporting documents before completing the consultation survey.

This consultation is open to all and, whilst it is particularly aimed at those who practice fire investigation, the views of colleagues and other stakeholders is vital to shaping the final version which will be added as an appendix to the fire investigation competency framework document.

Responses to this consultation are important to us and will help shape how the final product is developed and used by the fire and rescue sector.

It is also envisaged that this document will assist in meeting some of the requirements of ISO 17020 and the Forensic Science Regulators code of practice and conduct, although this is not confirmed.

Consultation closes at midnight on the 3rd April 2022.
