Is BAFE an independent body?

Yes – BAFE is a fully independent body.

BAFE was first established in 1984 within FETA - Fire Extinguishing Trades Association and BFPSA - the British Fire Protection Systems Association (BAFE was registered with Companies House in 1986). Since 2009 however BAFE has been completely independent and has evolved into developing and monitoring schemes to determine competency for multiple specific fire safety services. BAFE is based in its own offices as a tenant of the Fire Service College, Moreton in Marsh.
