HSE Fee for Intervention (FFI)

Drop of water falling from a leaf

HSEs new cost recovery scheme, Fee for Intervention (FFI), will come into force on Monday, 1 October.

Under The Health and Safety (Fees) Regulations 2012, those who break health and safety laws are liable for recovery of HSE’s related costs, including inspection, investigation and taking enforcement action.

The Fee for Intervention hourly rate for 2012/13 is £124. The many businesses that comply with their legal obligations will continue to pay nothing.

HSE will review how FFI is working after the first twelve months of operation, and within three years of the regime coming into effect. The review reports will be published on this website.

This site contains all of the information a dutyholder needs to understand the new scheme.
