Reminder to BAFE SP101 Registered Organisations

Wednesday 25th July 2018

Fire Extinguisher technician Asbestos Awareness/Health and Safety training

BAFE introduced its revised fire extinguisher (SP101) scheme in October last year (2017) with an additional focus on the safety of fire extinguisher technicians and their working practices. This included new requirements to provide evidence of training in Health and Safety in the workplace and Asbestos Awareness from training providers delivering accredited training accepted by BAFE.


If you are a BAFE SP101 registered organisation and had fire extinguisher technicians registered prior to the revision of the scheme, we would remind you that these technicians will need to have taken this additional training and certificates must be supplied to BAFE by the end of the year (December 31st 2018) for their SP101 registration to remain valid. Failure to do so will result in technicians being suspended and failure to rectify this will end in their removal from SP101 registration.


Many organisations and their technicians have already completed this training or are in the process of doing so. If you require further information to achieve this, a list of accepted accreditation bodies for these additional competencies can be found here. Only training courses which have been accredited by these bodies will be acceptable under the BAFE SP101 scheme.
