The Responsible Person can be assured that as we are certified to the BAFE SP205 scheme all assessors have undergone assessments, reviews and continuing CPD to ensure they are capable of competently assessing differing risk properties.

The IFSM introduced the Tiered Fire Risk Assessors Register to assist responsible persons in sourcing competent persons to undertake their specific Fire Risk Assessment.

This ranges from entry level assessors just starting out in their career (Tier 1) through to nationally accredited, highly experienced professionals (Tier 3).

Tier 3 (NAFRAR) – Individuals able to complete high-risk properties and complex buildings and accredited by a 3rd Party,

Tier 2 (CFRAR) – Individuals able to complete medium-risk, medium complexity. Specialist Assessors in particular sectors

As the fire legislation is evolving and changing, proof of competency of Fire Risk Assessors is paramount and fore front.

The Building Safety Act 2022 Section 156 clearly states, “The responsible person must

not appoint a person to assist them with making or reviewing an assessment under Article 9 unless that person is competent.”

Fire Safety: Do I Need a Fire Risk Assessment?...

A Fire Risk Assessment is a legal requirement. If you are responsible for a building, for example an employer, owner or occupier of premises that aren’t a ‘single private dwelling’ (a private home), you need to make sure a suitably competent person completes a Fire Risk Assessment.

We carry out fire door inspections to ensure every aspect of your fire doors are functioning in accordance with regulations.

In the event of a fire, it is critical that exit and entrance points not only provide a safe means of evacuation but are also engineered to provide an effective barrier against the spread of smoke and fire.

We have no association with contractors which will give you the peace of mind that our inspections are totally independent.
