Seminar “Investigation of the circumstances of fires associated with man-made phenomena”

18 February 2019

Kyiv Scientific Research Institute of Forensic Expertise of the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine was held an internal scientific and practical seminar “Investigation of the circumstances of fires associated with man-made phenomena.”

The event was held with the participation of specialists from the Department of Research on Life Safety, Fire, Technical and Electrical Engineering Studies of the Laboratory of Engineering and Technical Research of KFI, as well as representatives from the Vinnytsia, Zhytomyr, and Cherkasy Branches.

The experts discussed topical issues of research into the circumstances of fires associated with man-made phenomena. The seminar was conducted on the example of the consideration of real events of accidents.

In particular, one of the events occurred in the regional administrative center and caused the death of a person. Fire and technical expertise in this case were appointed after three years from the moment of the tragedy, and as a result of the urgent investigative actions, not all circumstances were recorded. Despite everything, the commission of experts based on the available materials made conclusions that provided the court with an opportunity to objectively understand the circumstances of the accident and make an appropriate decision.

In addition, at the seminar proposals for conducting research work for 2020-2021 were discussed, which will be considered at the meeting of the Academic Council of KFI and at the meeting of the spring section of the Scientific Advisory and Methodological Council concerning the problems of forensic and fire-technical expertise.
