The ASFP Guide to Inspecting Passive Fire Protection for Fire Risk Assessors is aimed at fire risk assessors and those directly involved in the specification, installation or maintenance of passive fire protection. It lays out clear, pragmatic guidance to enable the identification and inspection of all types of passive fire protection as part of a fire risk assessment, as required under UK legislation.

This guide has been produced to assist fire risk assessors (FRAs) to carry out inspections of Passive Fire Protection (PFP) as part of a fire risk assessment under appropriate fire safety legislation which inlcudes the:

- Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (England & Wales) (FSO)
- Fire (Scotland) Act 2005
- Fire and Rescue Services (Northern Ireland) Order 2006
- General Application Regulations 2007 under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005. Fire Services Act 1981 & 2003 (Ireland)

It provides assessors with appropriate guidance for them to be able to verify that the PFP supporting means of escape is adequate. The legislation reffered to above is designed to save lives in the event of a fire but does not necessarily cover the issue of property protection.
The document offers guidance on: passive fire protection - what it is and how it works; building layout and construction; how to assess each type of passive fire protection measure within the context of a fire risk assessment for means of escape. It also provides examples of both good and bad workmanship, example checklists to compile an appropriate risk assessment and describes where to go for further guidance.
