BAFE Sub-contracting Information for SP101/ST104 registered companies
Friday 1st July 2016
Technical Note 1 is a mandatory requirement of the SP101/ST104 scheme and must be complied with by anyone sub-contracting work.
On 10 April 2012 we first published an update to the Maintenance of Portable Fire Extinguishers scheme document which incorporated Technical Note 1. All companies in the scheme at that time were e-mailed to highlight the fact this formed part of the SP101/ST104 Scheme Document. It was pointed out that whilst it was limited in scope it was important to those companies who contracted out work on the Isle of Man. As a result of recent actions, BAFE are issuing this reminder.
Technical Note 1 is a mandatory requirement of the SP101/ST104 scheme and must be complied with by anyone sub-contracting work on the Isle of Man.
The principle of the Technical Note is as follows:
In any given specified location, where local regulations regarding the use of non-residents apply and where no BAFE Registered company exists in that location, the use of a non BAFE Registered sub-contractor is permitted providing:
• The sub-contractor is under the direct control of the BAFE Registered Company through a formal written agreement.
• The sub-contractor complies with the requirements of the scheme.
• Before such work can commence, BAFE are notified in writing and served with a copy of the formal written agreement.
Any sub-contractor operating under this dispensation is not permitted to claim they are BAFE Registered nor are they permitted to use the BAFE name or logo.
If you have any questions regarding this Technical Note please do not hesitate to contact the BAFE office.
