Why Use A Third Party Accredited Company?

Fire safety is all about protecting life and property. It is a legal requirement for the purchaser of fire safety services to ensure that the person or organisation carrying out the work is ‘competent’.

Third Party Accreditation is evidence that a service or product adheres to certain standards.

An independent expert, the third party, has assessed the service or product and certified that it complies with those standards.

As the Responsible Person this can assist in proving you have acted with due diligence in your fire safety requirements.

Using a BAFE Accredited company offers peace of mind that you will receive a quality service and most importantly a safe and suitably performed job done that adheres to the requirements of the relevant standards.


Ensuring you use competent suppliers is both a legal requirement and a practical necessity.
Getting it wrong can be very costly through fines, legal costs, loss of property and loss of business. By seeking out suppliers with Third Party Accreditation, the risk is substantially reduced.
