About BAFE

About BAFE certification

The primary objective of the British Approvals for Fire Equipment council (BAFE) is to bring about a registration scheme for the fire protection industry that promotes the quality of fire safety, and which is certified by a third party body.

All of the certification bodies BAFE works with are United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) approved, with a scope and experience to work within the fire protection industry.

We chose the National Security Inspectorate (NSI) as our UKAS accredited certification body because their premier FIRE Gold scheme is unrivalled in our industry.

Our customers may not know the schemes details, but the gold medal logo sets us apart as the best choice of supplier.

This required us to be examined under the BAFE scheme for the Design, Installation, Commissioning & Maintenance of Fire Detection and Alarm Systems as well as the international quality management standard ISO 9001.

Having received the NSI FIRE Gold award in 2007,
we automatically became a BAFE registered company.
