What does this mean for our clients ........


NSI approval is a highly respected and trusted hallmark in the security and fire sectors, demonstrating technical expertise and a reassuring quality of service.


NSI is the UK's premier UKAS accredited independent certification body within the security systems, guarding services and fire safety sectors.


Buyers and specifiers are reassured their NSI approved security and fire safety providers are reputable and trustworthy with the expertise to translate needs into dedicated solutions.


Many insurers recognise NSI approved companies and the systems they install.


Check with your insurer whether having a system installed and maintained by an NSI approved company enables you to receive a discount on your insurance premium.


Why should I use an NSI approved company?


All staff are vetted, including the engineers, so you know that whoever comes to your business or home has been security screened to British Standard 7858


Every installation by an NSI Gold accredited company comes with an NSI Certificate of Compliance.  This can be shown to your insurance company as evidence that your system has been installed to all the necessary standards.




All BAFE registered organisations have been independently assessed to determine quality evidence of their competency to confidently deliver specific fire safety services.

BAFE develops schemes (based on defined quality standards and industry best practice) for fire safety organisations to achieve third-party certification.

This provides independent evidence of their competency to offer specific fire safety works.

If you require fire safety services for your premises, using a BAFE registered company such as ourselves, ensures that you are dealing with a company that works to the best industry practice, meets all appropriate standards and is independently assessed on a regular basis.

Benefits of using a BAFE approved company.

All BAFE Registered Organisations nationwide have been independently and regularly assessed by a UKAS accredited certification body to ensure they have achieved quality evidence of competency to deliver specific work.

As the person responsible for fire safety, you can see certificated evidence of your chosen organisation's competency. Your insurers will be interested in seeing this evidence, especially if you have to make a claim. Don't just specify, verify third-party certification. Request to see and check your chosen organisation's third-party certification/BAFE scheme registration certificate to check these are appropriate for the work required prior to work commencing on-site.

BAFE scheme criteria for third-party certification are monitored and reviewed regularly by BAFE scheme Monitoring Groups using industry experts to provide confidence that they are always at the leading edge of the fire safety industry. This means the BAFE schemes remain the most up to date representation of quality and competency for specific fire safety work.
