Route To Certification - FIA 

There are two ways we can help through our Our Route to Certification package or auditing consultancy from our own Compliance Manager.

Whether you’re looking at obtaining one of the BAFE or LPCB LPS schemes or ISO 9001 certification we can help.

Route To Certification package includes:                                                                              

  • FIA membership (free for the first year)
  • Consultancy services of the FIA Compliance Manager
  • Certification body fees
  • Scheme fees (e.g. BAFE)

You choose which certification body and scheme and we help you through every step of the process. Better yet you can spread your payments over the year to make it easier on your cash flow.

Good practice and informing the public

The FIA also has a duty to inform the public about good practice. Employers, in particular, are often confused as to their responsibilities and we provide the guidance they need and encourage them to buy from FIA members.

There is free information for Duty Holders as well as a Best Practice Guide to Fire Safety in Commercial Premises.

Fire safety seminars held jointly with the Fire & Rescue Services are another method we use of getting the word out, along with publicising campaigns such as 'Cut False Alarm Costs'.
