New ISO Standard to help assess fire risk


ISO 16732-1:2012 Fire safety engineering – Fire risk assessment – Part 1: General will help fire safety practitioners to better assess fire risk. Fire safety engineers, public authorities, fire service personnel, code developers and enforcers, insurers, fire safety managers, and risk managers use the Standard.

ISO 16732-1 provides an overview of fire risk management, the steps involved in fire risk estimation – the estimation of the frequency and consequences of a risk, and the steps involved in fire risk evaluation against regulations, costs, or alternative approaches. This first edition of ISO 16732-1 cancels and replaces ISO/TS 16732:2005.
