If you are a purchaser of goods and services, you probably want to be confident that the product or service you’re purchasing is fit for purpose. If it should fail and there is no safety or financial consequences, you’re probably not going to worry too much. However, fire safety is all about protecting life and property. Furthermore, it is a legal requirement for the purchaser of fire safety services to ensure that the person or organisation carrying out the work is ‘competent’. As most people commissioning this work are unlikely to be experts in fire safety, how can they be sure that the individual or organisation they are hiring is competent to do the job?

Third Party Certification (TPC) is evidence that a service or product adheres to certain standards. An independent expert, the third party, has assessed the service or product and certified that it complies with those standards. TPC can cover the technical qualities of what is being provided, but it can also relate to environmental, ethical or other qualities. This allows purchasers to be confident that what they are purchasing is ‘fit for purpose’ or that the supplier is capable doing the job.

 

Third Party Certification (Bafsa)

There are three providers of certification activities for installers of sprinkler systems and one provider of certification for sprinkler system components.
