Compliance Check List

Self Assessment On-line Compliance Check

If you are accountable for fire safety in your premises, this straightforward and practical toolkit can assist you in assessing your compliance with current fire regulations.

A report can automatically be sent to the Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service for review and action, where appropriate. One of five risk levels will be calculated for your premises.

How will we use the information?

The toolkit will utilize the information you provide to broadly evaluate the risk level of your premises in comparison to the national benchmark. In addition to generating an instant report, our fire safety inspectors will assess the information you provide. The risk level will determine the priority level for future inspections conducted by the Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service. The data will be retained and utilized for our statutory inspection and enforcement responsibilities without bias.
