Who Are BAFE?
The best description of BAFE is provided on their own website:
"BAFE develops schemes to support quality standards for fire protection companies to achieve and become third party certified.
This independently acknowledges their competency to provide specific fire protection services.
If you require fire protection services for your premises then you need BAFE to be sure that the companies that provide them meet all the appropriate standards and are independently audited.
BAFE is completely independent and therefore is a totally unbiased party to help competent companies and people in need of fire protection services find each other. There are registered companies across the UK and are both large nationals and smaller regional businesses who have all achieved the same high quality standards".
BAFE is the independent third party registration body for the fire protection industry.
For more than 25 years they have been developing schemes for UKAS accredited certification bodies to assess and approve companies to recognised standards.
BAFE also provides independent examination services to leading training organisations for the portable extinguisher initial training requirements of BS5306-3.
When dealing with people’s safety and lives it is important that you can rely on fire fighting equipment and devices supplied and serviced by competent people.
