It is the responsibility of individual fire and rescue authorities to assess and plan for potential risks at sites in their local area, as part of the process of the Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP) for their area. The scale and costs of meeting these needs is therefore a matter for the local fire and rescue service.

The Chief Fire Officers Association have worked closely with Waste Industry Safety and Health (WISH), and Environment Agency, to provide industry advice on minimising fire risk.
