Becoming a BAFE SP206 Registered Kitchen Fire Protection System Provider


How to become certificated and BAFE registered to the BAFE SP206 Registered Kitchen Fire Protection Systems (SP206) scheme

A step by step process of how to become certificated and BAFE registered to the BAFE Kitchen Fire Protection Systems (SP206) scheme to provide fire extinguisher services can be found below.

Step 1

Check requirements – download and read the BAFE SP206 Scheme Document. Organisation competence requirements are listed within the document (Clause 7). 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 19).

Step 2

Contact BSI and/or NSI directly to discuss assessment and cost for this (BAFE fees are included within the Certification Body assessment costs). BSI and NSI, as the BAFE licensed Certification Bodies for SP206, deliver the scheme office assessment and will also want to see evidence of work undertaken. On satisfactory completion of the assessment the applicant company will be awarded third party certification to the scope of BAFE SP206.
