In 2012 the UK Government tasked the Fire Risk Assessors Competency Council (FRACC) to set a bench-mark expected of Fire Risk Assessors. The aim was to deter cowboy’s from selling poor quality fire risk assessments, compromising safety and sometimes leading to prison sentences.

More recently in June 2016 an Independent fire risk assessor and Runcorn care home were sentenced.
