BAFE SP205 Assessment and Registration Process
A step by step process of how to become Third Party Certificated and BAFE Registered to the BAFE SP205 Life Safety Fire Risk Assessment Scheme can be found below.
The BAFE SP205 Life Safety Fire Risk Assessment Scheme Document outlines all the requirements for gaining BAFE SP205 Registration (see Downloads). The step by step information below is an outline of the process.
Check requirements of the BAFE SP205 Scheme – download and read the BAFE SP205 Scheme Document (see Downloads). For this scheme you do not need ISO9001 certification. However, you are required to have robust quality Management Systems in place. This is explained in the scheme document (Clause 9). An internal review should be performed using this document to see if your organization complies with all the necessary requirements.
UKAS Accredited Certification Bodies (licensed by BAFE) deliver the BAFE SP205 scheme assessments. Please contact your chosen Certification Body directly to discuss the BAFE SP205 assessment process and costs for this (BAFE SP205 fees are included within the Certification Body assessment costs, you do not pay any fees directly to BAFE for this Scheme).
Your chosen Certification Body will deliver the BAFE SP205 scheme assessment and will also want to see evidence of work undertaken. On satisfactory completion of the assessment the applicant organization will be awarded Third Party Certification to the scope of BAFE SP205.
When your organization has achieved Third Party Certification to the scope of SP205, your chosen Certification Body will inform BAFE directly of this (including information of a Primary Contact and designated Validator/s).
Your organization will then be added to the BAFE Fire Safety Register online, which will enable all users searching for Third Party Certificated BAFE Registered Companies for Fire Risk Assessment services to access your information.
BAFE will then send out a welcome pack including your BAFE SP205 Registration Certificate. At this point you will be permitted to display the BAFE SP205 logo and promote your BAFE SP205 Registration where appropriate (please contact BAFE for digital versions of the BAFE SP205 logo for use on web/print/vehicles).
