What is BAFE and the BAFE Fire Safety Register?

BAFE logoThe British Approvals for Fire Equipment (“BAFE”) was “established in 1984, is a non-profit making organisation and operates independent third party schemes of approval for fire protection systems and services

They have a Council on which are represented all major stakeholder interests, including the Department for Communities and Local Government, as well as consumer interests, enforcement authorities, insurers, certification bodies, the trade and other interested parties” (taken from BAFE’s homepage and their FAQs).

Amongst their other functions, BAFE are the body responsible for the authoring of trade specific standards used in conjunction with BS EN ISO 9001 in this trade. Most relevant amongst these are SP101 and ST104 which relates to the Contract Maintenance of Portable Fire Extinguishers and SP203-1, the modular scheme relating to Fire Detection & Alarm Systems.

For more information, visit the BAFE’s homepage.

BAFE Registered Companies

In selecting a BAFE registered business, you are ensuring that “its products and services conform to recognised standards...Where relevant an independent third party certificate of conformance is issued that can be used as part of a statutory defence in law, should the necessity arise” (taken from BAFE’s “User or Buyer” page).
