Summary of Fire Investigation Report - £122.80

These reports contain a high-level summary of a fire investigation.

 

Fire Investigation reports are issued only to those who have an interest in the property involved in the fire. Ownership, residency, or insurable interest would be examples of legitimate entitlement. Reports may be disclosed to other parties who cannot prove their entitlement if such release would be in the public interest.

 

These reports will not be disclosed while an investigation into an incident is being conducted by a relevant authority (e.g. Police or Health and Safety Executive), or an enforcing authority (e.g. Northumberland County Council or NFRS) is taking action at the premises involved. Reports will only be issued once any such investigation or enforcement action has been concluded.

 

Any personal data contained within the reports are exempt from disclosure where disclosure of personal data would breach one or more of the principles of the General Data Protection Regulations.

 

A charge of £122.80 will be made for this report. There is no charge for the supply of the report where a request for a copy document or information is submitted by a person identified on the Fire Report itself.
