FIA reveal Third Party Certification growth
Friday 29th April 2016
In a webinar earlier today, Ian Moore, CEO of the Fire Industry Association presented findings from their Market Conditions Review.
During this presentation an in-webinar poll was taken asking if the audience had seen more or less tenders in the last six months require Third Party Certification when compared to the previous half year.
33.4% had seen slightly or a lot more tenders in the last six months that require Third Party Certification.
BAFE continuously responds to public sector tenders informing the awarding body of the importance of Third Party Certification within the fire industry and are pleased to find that more industry bodies are recognising this.
Stephen Adams, BAFE CEO, says ‘the FIA survey provides a valuable tool to monitor trends within their membership, who represent quality providers within the fire industry. The responses that we see from public sector bodies indicate an increasingly growing proportion who specify third party certification as a requirement. There is still much work to be done in the private sector to ensure that they recognise the value of using competent, certificated providers to protect their people and businesses and don’t just go for the apparent cheapest option.’
