The National Security Inspectorate is an independent, not-for-profit approvals body that inspects companies providing home security, business security and fire protection services.
Choosing a NSI approved company ensures that the contractor you select works to the highest recognised industry standards as demanded by the police, fire services and insurance industry.
It is for this reason that the Police, Fire Service and Insurers trust companies like Alert Fire and Security to meet exact standards set by NSI.
Choosing fire protection from a BAFE Registered Firm ensures that its products and services conform to recognised standards.
In today’s environment of risk assessment, with the increasing responsibility for safety on the owner / occupier, it is increasingly important that the quality of fire protection ensures “fit for purpose” and is installed and maintained by “competent persons”. In buying your fire protection from a BAFE Registered Firm you are assured of this.

The Fire Industry Association, or the FIA as it is more commonly known, is a not-for-profit trade association with the aim of promoting the professional status of the UK fire safety industry.
The Association was born out of a merger between two longstanding and well-respected trade associations, FETA (Fire Extinguishing Trade Association) and BFPSA (British Fire Protection Systems Association).
The two associations had long shared a common interest in the promotion of the professional status of the UK fire industry and the FIA is proud to continue this work.
Over the years local authority health and safety and procurement professionals, with the support of the Health and Safety Executive, have developed the Contractor Health and Safety assessment scheme (CHAS).
The scheme is available for use by any public and private sector organizations to use when shortlisting contractors, suppliers and consultants (companies) who apply to work for them.
It provides information about the health and safety part of their application. Companies apply to join the scheme so everyone knows they meet acceptable standards of health and safety compliance.
Clients from both the public and private sectors are users of the scheme and our database.
