HM Fire Service Inspectorate in Scotland: Chief Inspector's Plan 2022 to 2025
Planned inspection activity 2022-23
Due to the significant impact of Covid-19 restrictions in 2021-22, our programme of inspection and our work was unavoidably delayed. As a consequence two of our Thematic inspections, planned to conclude in 2021-22, have been carried over to 2022-23. We anticipate that both of these inspection reports will be laid before Parliament in the first quarter of this year, and as such, will have minimal impact on other planned activities for the year ahead.
Service Delivery Area Inspection
In line with our planned move to an SDA level approach, we plan on carrying out a thorough inspection of activity against key themes in one SDA each year. The schedule of inspections for the lifespan of this three year Plan is shown in Table 1 below.
2022-23: East SDA
2023-24: West SDA
2024-25: North SDA
As indicated above two of the Thematic inspections planned for 2021-22 have been unavoidably delayed. Schedules for publication of these, and other Thematic inspections planned for 2022-23 are set out in the table below.
