BAFE launches new campaign:
Don’t just Specify, Verify!
Independent European Certification has worked with BAFE for many years in providing assessment and certification for fire safety providers.
Their new campaign Don’t just Specify, Verify! informs premises management and the public that specifying Third Party Certification is only part of the process in acting with due diligence.
The campaign also points out the important second, and sometimes overlooked, verification stage when specifying and sourcing a competent Third Party Certificated provider to help comply with fire safety legislation.
The BAFE Fire Safety Register, an independent national register of Third Party Certificated fire safety service providers can be found at www.bafe.org.uk
