What is FETA?

FETA logoThe Fire Extinguishing Trades Association (“FETA”) merged with the British Fire Protection Systems Association (“BFPSA”) and the Fire Industry Confederation (“FIC”) on 1st April 2007 to form a single large trade association, the Fire Industry Association (“FIA”).

Formerly, FETA was “the Trade Association of manufacturers and maintainers of portable fire fighting equipment… Established in 1916 it [was] a non-profit making organisation funded by membership subscription”
(taken from their profile on their old website).

FETA’s objective was to “uphold and enhance the professional status of the Fire Protection Industry by encouraging the adoption of improved standards for product, service and quality management systems and promoting greater use of high quality products and services to the benefit of all” (taken from their profile on their website).

FETA was a member of the confederation FIC.
