What Is The BAFE SP101 Scheme?

The BAFE SP101 Scheme is an industry-recognised certification proving competency in the field and our pledge to deliver the highest degree of service to our clients consistently. The scheme is designed to observe all aspects of the British Standard BS 5306, which primarily focuses on fire extinguisher installations and equipment on commercial premises.

Within the BAFE SP101, the following BS 5306 elements are of the utmost importance:

BS 5306-3: This part focuses on businesses providing and maintaining portable fire extinguishers, ensuring that the significance of efficiency and competency of equipment is always highlighted. It also targets the importance of ensuring an extinguisher’s repair status is adequate. 

BS 5306-8: This next part handles the selecting and positioning of all portable fire extinguishers and related equipment. Ensuring extinguishers are placed in the correct location for ease of access during an emergency is mandatory.

BS 5306-9: This area addresses the functionality of fire extinguishers, accentuating the vitality of recharging extinguishers and keeping them in effective working order.

A thank you note to our valued clients

Without the support of our new and existing clients, we would not be able to attain such a prestigious accreditation. While it is not a business owner’s duty to be knowledgeable in the intricate details of such fire safety standards, it can be a minefield when selecting a provider with the relevant skills, experience and knowledge in the area. 

And for that, we are grateful to every one of our clients who have chosen us to implement an effective fire safety solution in their commercial property. As BS 5306-3 rightly notes, “the onus lies with the responsible individual to ensure that a competent entity regularly maintains extinguishers, as they are regarded as “life safety equipment.” With FFPS, clients can rest assured that their fire extinguishers are in proficient hands, consistently ready for use, and compliant with all necessary regulations.
