BAFE sees record monthly registrations
THE COMPANY saw 34 companies register third party certification on its schemes in one month this November.
BAFE stated that the companies had ‘all successfully achieved third party certification to one of the BAFE schemes’ to ‘prove their competency in a specific fire safety service’, with the end of November seeing BAFE register 40% more companies ‘than for the whole of 2017’. This had ‘broken registration records’ for the organisation, which believes UKAS accredited third party certification is ‘a clear method of demonstrating a company’s competency to provide fire safety services’.
Stephen Adams, BAFE chief executive, commented: ‘It is evident with the increase in companies gaining third party certification that end users and specifiers are taking their fire safety obligations more seriously than ever before. It is encouraging to see that more providers are seeking to gain third party certification to validate their own competency, distinguishing themselves from their competition.’
