Find a fire risk assessor

For many premises, we would strongly recommend that you get a competent assessor to do your fire risk assessment for you. 

We cannot carry out a fire risk assessment for you and we can't recommend individual assessors or companies.

Our guide will help you find a competent risk assessor. 

How to find a competent risk assessor

There are many skilled and competent fire risk assessors who advertise their services locally.

When looking for an assessor you should:

  • get at least two quotes from different providers
  • look for someone with third-party accreditation or from a register (see our list of registers). 

We cannot recommend individual assessors or service providers. 

If you need more guidance you can download guides on choosing a competent fire risk assessor and a list of competency criteria written by the National Fire Chief’s Council
 

Where to look for a fire risk assessor

These organisations hold registers of risk assessors and will help you find a competent risk assessor in your local area. 

If you are a risk assessor and do not belong to one of these registers you may like to consider joining. 

Alternatively, if you already belong to a register that is not listed here please send details of the register to firesafetyhelpdesk@dsfire.gov.uk for consideration to be included on this page.
