If you conduct fire risk assessments the FIA’s own Technical Bulletin provides an explanation as to why BSI have permanently withdrawn PAS79-2 the guidance document on conducting residential fire risk assessments.
This leaves a big question as to where future guidance will come from.
If you are an IFSM member you will already be aware that they have taken the initiative of writing to the CEO of BSI objecting to their move and to date they have not received any definitive reply other than they are reviewing it! Credit goes to both the IFSM and FIA in the efforts that they have made and are continuing to take in this matter.
