Role of Authorising Engineer (AE) Fire

What is the role of an Authorising Engineer (AE) Fire?

The demands of Fire Safety Management within a healthcare setting may sometimes require additional and often more technical resource than is available within the organisation’s management team.

DRLC can provide independent verification and audit as outlined within the remit of Authorising Engineer as defined in the Health Technical Memorandum 05 suite of documents (HTM 05).

We undertake a yearly independent audit of the Fire Safety Management Systems by an Authorising Engineer (Fire Safety) to inform the Annual Statement of Fire Safety which is used to provide assurance that the organisation is conforming to the fire safety elements of Outcome 10 of the CQC National Standards. DRLC is able to provide Authorising Engineer (Fire Safety) services either as a discrete fire safety audit, a service to achieve a specific fire safety objective, and ad-hoc source of professional fire safety help and advice or as an external reference to endorse a particular fire safety approach.

DRLC provides fire engineering capabilities combined with unsurpassed knowledge of Building Regulations Approved Document B and British Standards to enable us to advise design teams on their Fire Strategy Development.
