What is BAFE SP205?
BAFE SP205 is a third party accreditation scheme approved by UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service). The scheme has been developed by a group of industry experts to assist the Responsible Person (or Duty Holder in Scotland) to ensure that they meet the requirements for Fire Risk Assessments under the following legislation:
· Regulatory Reform Order (Fire Safety) 2005
· Fire (Scotland) Act 2005
· Fire and Rescue Services (Northern Ireland) Order 2006
It sets specific criteria for the approved fire safety consultancy to meet in terms of the competency of its assessors in completing fire risk assessments, those delegated to validate the reports as well as the company’s management standards and work processes.
To gain accreditation Firesafe Solutions (UK) Ltd underwent an assessment by a third party certification body (NSI) who themselves are accredited by UKAS. They assessed our systems, work processes and the competency of staff through on site witnessing of fire risk assessments as well as the administration systems employed to support the inspections. The company and assessors will continue to be monitored and audited by NSI to ensure that we continue to maintain the required standards.
What does this mean for you?
