Fire Extinguisher - BAFE SP101 Scheme

SSAIB Stand: 3a/H45

Portable fire extinguishers are a safety provision that can be undervalued at times but would be one of the first things you would look for if a small, manageable fire broke out in your building.

It is a legal requirement for all non-domestic/commercial properties to (where appropriate) equip the building with appropriate fire-fighting equipment (e.g. portable fire extinguishers). It is also part of these requirements to ensure they are maintained appropriately, ready to use in the event of a fire.

As the person or team appointed responsible for fire safety in your building (Responsible Person/Duty Holder), it is important to demonstrate you have acted with due diligence to source a quality provider for these works. BAFE strongly recommends using an appropriately Third Party Certificated provider.

SSAIB offer third party certification to the BAFE Scheme BAFE SP101 which is used to assess the competency of Portable Fire Extinguisher Organizations and their employed Fire Extinguisher Technicians.

The BAFE SP101 Competency of Portable Fire Extinguisher Organizations and Technicians Scheme exists to provide quality evidence that companies are competent (and operate an effective management system) to cover all aspects of this service and the fire extinguisher technicians they employ are competent to deliver appropriate services.
