The Fire and Rescue National Framework for England, published on 11 July 2012, sets out that:

“Fire and rescue authorities must provide assurance on financial, governance and operational matters and show how they have had due regard to the expectations set out in their integrated risk management plan and the requirements included in this Framework. To provide assurance, fire and rescue authorities must publish an annual statement of assurance.”

This guidance provides information on the content of these statements of assurance.
