Fire alarm installation Kitemark scheme

Kitemark Scheme for Fire Alarm Installations

The Chief Fire Officers Association now strongly recommends third party certification by a UKAS accredited organization, for companies who design, install, commission and maintain fire detection and alarm systems. As of 1st September 2008 this applies to all fire detection systems.

Turn this to your advantage by gaining a Kitemark for Fire Alarm Systems. This gives you the recommended certification and the competitive advantage the BSI Kitemark brings. Recognized by 83% of the British public, the Kitemark has high levels of recognition and is associated with a trustworthy company. The BSI Kitemark can help your business stand out and can enhance your reputation.

Based on the BAFE SP203 Scheme, the BSI Kitemark for Fire Alarm Installation recognizes that many companies specialize in certain aspects of fire alarm services and this is reflected in the scheme. By using a flexible modular structure, SP203 will allow your company to gain Kitemark certification in all the scheme modules listed OR just those modules under which you are competent to work.

The four modules are:


  1. System Design
  2. Installation
  3. Commissioning & handover
  4. Maintenance
