BAFE, the independent register of quality fire safety service providers has broken registration records in November adding 34 company registrations in one month. These companies have all successfully achieved third party certification to one of the BAFE schemes to prove their competency in a specific fire safety service. By the end of November BAFE have already registered 40% more companies than for the whole of 2017.
Stephen Adams, BAFE Chief Executive, commented: “It is evident with the increase in companies gaining third party certification that end users and specifiers are taking their fire safety obligations more seriously than ever before. It is encouraging to see that more providers are seeking to gain third party certification to validate their own competency, distinguishing themselves from their competition.”
BAFE continue to promote quality in fire safety championing UKAS accredited third party certification as a clear method of demonstrating a company’s competency to provide fire safety services. BAFE are also involved in a number of the Working Groups reporting into the Industry Response Group on Competences for Building a Safer Future following key recommendations in Dame Judith Hackitt’s Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety.
