Established in 1984, BAFE is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving standards in fire protection.

Fire Industry Association (FIA)

Formed in April 2007, the FIA is a non-profit trade association with the aim of promoting the professional status of the UK fire safety industry. The FIA was born out of a merger between two long-standing and well-respected trade associations:

  • FETA (Fire Extinguishing Trade Association)
  • 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.

Buy with Confidence (BWC)

In response to concerns about 'rogue traders' which are often highlighted in the media, a partnership of Local Authority Trading Standards Services took a ground-breaking step by putting together the Buy with Confidence Scheme. The scheme provides consumers with a list of local businesses which have given their commitment to trading fairly. Every business listed has undergone a series of detailed checks before being approved as a member of the scheme.
