The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) will be making its exhibitor debut at this year’s Fire Safety Event, which takes place next month on 25-27 April at the NEC in Birmingham.

The Inspectorate will this year have a dedicated hub within the Fire Safety Event where visitors are invited to meet face to face with NSI’s team to learn how third party certification can enhance their business by improving performance and increasing customer satisfaction.

NSI is licensed by BAFE to conduct fire safety assessments on their behalf, awarding third party certification to compliant providers on a range of competency schemes namely:

  • Fire Risk Assessment (BAFE SP205)
  • Fire Detection and Fire Alarm Systems (BAFE SP203-1)
  • Fire Extinguisher Maintenance/Servicing (BAFE SP101)
  • Emergency Lighting Systems (BAFE SP203-4)
  • Fixed Gaseous Fire Extinguishing Systems (BAFE SP203-3)
  • Kitchen Fire Protection Systems (BAFE SP206)
  • Evacuation Alert Systems (BAFE SP207)

Organisations selecting NSI as their Certification Body for one or more of the BAFE competency schemes will, once granted certification, in addition to BAFE registration be awarded usage of the coveted NSI Gold or Silver certification logos.

NSI Seminars

Visitors to the Fire Safety Event will also have the opportunity to attend a specially curated programme of educational seminars in which NSI’s Senior Operations Manager (Systems), Chris Hayes, will be participating. Hayes, who leads NSI’s team of Systems auditors, will be speaking on 25 April at 2.30pm in the Innovation and Regulation Theatre explaining ‘Fire Risk Assessment & Evacuation Alert Systems – A Certification Body’s Perspective on Demonstrating Competence’. Those attending the session will find out how becoming third party certificated helps providers demonstrate due diligence and evidence competency to their clients, which is increasingly recommended by the Government.

NSI CEO Richard Fogelman commented: “Having seen significant growth in fire-related certification enquiries we are proud to be bringing our experts to the Fire Safety Event for the first time to meet with companies interested in obtaining third-party certification. BAFE registration together with NSI’s hallmark of excellence, provides clear evidence of organisational competency and represents the best level of quality fire safety service providers can achieve.

“The event also provides a valuable opportunity to meet face to face with buyers of fire safety services for whom third-party certification is an important consideration.

“As the Fire Safety Event is co-located with The Security Event where, as an official Event Partner, we will also have a significant presence, visitors will have two touchpoints at the NEC where they will be able to connect with us.”
