Why Is Having A BAFE Certificate Of Compliance Important?
Many trades and services within the fire industry currently have no legal minimum qualification requirements; as such, if you use an unaccredited fire safety contractor, there is no guarantee that they will meet the standards necessary for protecting the safety of your staff, customers, premises, and stock.
The person or team appointed responsible for fire safety in your building - known as the Responsible Person(s) - is legally responsible for demonstrating that they have acted with due diligence when sourcing a competent fire safety provider; this legal responsibility stands solely with the Responsible Person(s).
The BAFE Fire Safety Registry was created to assist in the development, maintenance, and promotion of Third-Party Certification Schemes in the fire safety industry. These schemes provide objective and quantifiable evidence for the quality of accredited fire safety providers, and demonstrate their competency to deliver specific fire safety services.
BAFE themselves strongly recommend using a UKAS Accredited Third-Party Certified fire safety provider for all fire security installations.
Due Diligence: Understanding Your Responsibilities And Knowing Why To Only Hire BAFE Registered Companies
The Responsible Person(s) is legally responsible for ensuring that any fire safety provider sourced is competent to carry out the work required. When agreeing a contract, companies should ensure that only third-party certificated fire safety providers are employed, and then verify this certification so they can demonstrate that due diligence was conducted during the outsourcing process.
This duty rests wholly with the Responsible Person(s), and they must be able to provide evidence that due diligence was taken when selecting providers.
Organisations registered and verified under the BAFE Fire Safety Register have submitted evidence to prove their compliance with the appropriate BAFE standards – meaning they are recognised as trustworthy providers of fire safety services who meet the necessary standards for their fields.
The 'Don't Just Specify, Verify' Campaign For BAFE Certified Companies
While specifying that your company is looking for a third-party accredited organisation in your contract is helpful, it may not tell you everything you need to know.
UKAS Third-Party Certifications are specific to individual services, and some providers may be certified to deliver some services, but not others. As such, businesses must verify that the Third-Party Certification awarded to the contractor is valid and appropriate for the contract. Thus, BAFE registration alone should not be considered evidence of competency for all fire safety services.
It is the responsibility of the Responsible Person(s) to verify the Third-Party Certification of the contractor against the requirements of the contract before it is awarded.
The BAFE Don’t Just Specify, Verify Campaign was launched to raise awareness of a business' responsibility to verify the suitability of third-party accreditations. This campaign is supported by several organisations, including UKAS, UKAS Accredited Certification Bodies, Trade Associations, and Professional Bodies in the life and fire safety fields.
