The law does not say who is allowed to carry out a fire risk assessment.

However, the person must be competent enough to complete a ‘suitable and sufficient’ assessment of that particular building.

For large or complex buildings, this may mean getting a professional fire risk assessor to carry out the assessment.

You can download a guide to choosing a competent fire risk assessor (PDF, 91K) from the Chief Fire Officers Association’s website.
