Third party certification

We do not allow just anyone to become a member. Only companies that have third­ party certification such as BAFE SP203, SP101/ST104 or LPS1014 are eligible for membership of the FIA or manufacturers that are BS EN ISO 9001 certificated.

We are not interested in representing contractors who are not up to the job and who give the industry a bad name. Credibility, a reputation for high quality and second­-to­-none service are what FIA members are about.

Probationary membership is available for up to a year for an organisation which is on the way to achieving accreditation.
