Why We Align with the UK’s Top ‘Standards’ Associations

Back to News

At FireRite we are proud of the associations in business that we have built up over two decades in the fire safety industry.

That’s because it is the number of associations we align with that give us the edge over our competitors and ensure our fire health and safety advice is both contemporary and as good as it can possibly be. To the extent that we were awarded Best Fire Safety & Compliance Consultancy Business 2020 & 2021 at the recent Welsh Enterprise Awards.  

Importance Of Keeping Up-To-Date With Fire Legislation

The contemporary angle for fire safety is crucial today in light of new fire safety laws designed to achieve greater accountability for fire and structural safety issues throughout the complete lifecycle of the building from design through construction to occupation and beyond.

FireRite Associations

Our associations include a number of third-party certification schemes, operated by certification bodies that are, themselves, accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS). These provide evidence of compliance with the recognised standard and that the organisation itself has a suitable quality management system.

An example is the The National & Security Inspectorate (NSI). This is the leading certification body for the Security & Fire protections industries in the UK. Another is the BSI/ISO 9001 2015 scheme. BSI is the business standards company that helps organisations all over the world attain excellence in what they do.

The Fire Safety Register (BAFE) is another association which was originally created by the industry to regulate and raise the standard of fire extinguisher manufacture. It now also focuses on fire alarms, extinguisher maintenance, systems, emergency lighting and fire risk assessment.

BAFE’s Chris Auger is now a member of the government’s Industry Competence Committee (IICC). @BAFEFIRE: “The work of the IICC will play an important role in supporting the shadow Building Safety Regulator and raising competence across the built environment and fire sectors”.

We are proud members of the ECA, our Managing Director Gareth Selway represents the ECA Wales and sits on the FSA Committee, reviewing and advising on changes to legislation and British Standards.

We’re also members of Constructionline, SAFE contractor and the ASFP, the Association for Specialist Fire Protection who ‘strives to promote excellence in the design and installation of fire protection products through high quality and technical expertise’. What’s more, we’re proudly part of.the installer certification scheme FIRAS which is ‘the mark of endorsement of competency in the installation of products and systems, vital for achieving the protection required.’

By aligning ourselves with these associations we are providing the very best standards in terms of products, management, and health & safety advice.
