A new fire risk assessment certification scheme was officially launched last month.
The BAFE SP205 Life Safety Fire Risk Assessment Scheme has been developed for organisations which provide fire risk assessment services.
Speaking at the launch event in London on 30 May, BAFE chairman Phil Toase said:
“Development of independent schemes to ensure quality of fire protection and fire safety in the built environment has always been close to my heart.
“I have seen the misery and disruption caused by fire and I believe the wider fire community has a duty to ensure that everything possible is done to minimise these catastrophic effects. Third party certification ensures that independent bodies regularly assess the competence of companies to deliver their services.”
Four certification bodies are now working with UKAS to achieve the requirements to certificate the new scheme.
