SSAIB achieves 300th BAFE Certification

SSAIB, one of the licensed certification bodies who delivers BAFE scheme assessments, says it is delighted to have achieved a historic milestone of 300 active BAFE scheme-certificated companies.

Looking back at September 2019, BAFE registered A1 Fire and Security Ltd, was the 300th active company on the BAFE Fire Safety Register to have been assessed and third-party certificated through SSAIB. It joins the more than 1,450 BAFE-registered companies who are third-party certificated, with over 1,700 BAFE fire safety scheme certifications.

Devon-based A1 Fire and Security Ltd gained third-party certification and BAFE registration to the SP203-1 scheme, for the design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of fire detection and alarm systems.

Matthew Weigham of A1 Fire and Security Ltd stated: “Gaining certification to the BAFE SP203-1 scheme, through SSAIB as our certification body, is vital to show our commitment to quality when providing our fire alarm services. This audit was important to us to prove we are competent, and the certification provides us with substantial credibility that will help us promote this service.”

Stephen Adams, BAFE Chief Executive, said: “We congratulate both SSAIB on this milestone and A1 Fire and Security Ltd on gaining their third-party certification. SSAIB have been a long-standing supporter of BAFE, who are extremely proactive with their commitment to the fire safety industry.

“We wish them, and all of our licensed certification bodies, further ongoing success in our combined efforts to develop the quality regulation of this industry.”

SSAIB Chief Executive Alex Carmichael added: “SSAIB is extremely proud to offer the BAFE scheme assessments for fire safety third-party certification in multiple disciplines. Our congratulations go out to A1 Fire and Security on gaining their certification and I would also like to congratulate our Fire Systems Scheme Manager, Keith Strugnell, and the SSAIB team on this achievement.

“We will continue to work with BAFE to support the future of fire safety and, through certification of quality companies like A1 Fire and Security, the fire safety of customers’ premises.”
