BAFE is not a Certification Body. BAFE develop scheme criteria which licensed UKAS Accredited Certification Bodies then use to assess their competency to deliver a specific fire safety service. A company must hold Third Party Certification to a BAFE scheme to become BAFE Registered. If a company loses their Third Party Certification to a BAFE scheme, they also lose their BAFE Registration with immediate effect for this.
Legal obligations nationwide require the appointed responsible person for fire safety for commercial/non-domestic premises to have adequate fire protection.
