Fire Authorising Engineer
Healthcare institutions may have their own in house fire safety management resources. However it is often the case that specific challenges will require an analytical fire engineering approach that is outside the scope of the in house team.
It is useful to seek an independent validation for an approach to a fire safety issue, especially when dealing with the public or in high risk areas.
HTM 05-01 recommends a annual third party audit of the fire safety management system by an Authorising Engineer (Fire) to inform the annual statement of fire safety. This statement provides assurance that the organisation is conforming to the fire safety elements of Outcome 10 of the CQC National Standards. (Read Outcome 10 in this link on page 23 of the document)
