This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.
Dear Chief Fire Officers Association / National Fire Chief's Council,
It would appear that very few Fire & Rescue Services update The Enforcement Register, on your website. Much of the information is outdated, and some have not added any information for several years.
If F&RSs are not making use of the Register, how are they complying with their duties under the Environment and Safety Information Act 1988 which requires the keeping of a register for public access?

Dear K Atkinson,
Thank you for your enquiry
The registers are intended to provide interested parties with access to details regarding fire and rescue service enforcement activities and to assist fire services to comply with their duties under the Environment and Safety Information Act 1988 which requires the keeping of a register for public access.
There is no statutory obligation for fire and rescue services to use the enforcement registers which NFCC provides as a subsidiary of the charity CFOA.
In order to establish how those services that have opted not to use of our register are complying with their duties under the Environment and Safety Information Act 1988,you would need to approach them individually to ask.
