Bob Wells, Global Head of Personal Safety at BSI, recently attended Intersec 2020 in Dubai, the worlds leading trade fair for Security, Safety and Fire Protection. Here are his top five highlights from the show.
1) Interest for gas suppression system certification increases
There have been a significant number of enquires fo BSI Kitemark™ certification for gas suppression systems. Based around the BS EN 15004 series of standards, Kitemark certification has been developed in response to the growing requirements of various national regulatory authorities, particularly in the Gulf region.

2) Certification requirements for fire extinguishers large and small
The show discussed testing and certification for many types of extinguishers from aerosol through to portable and mobile extinguishers. Did you know BSI Kitemark certification for fire extinguishers is one of our longest-established programmes helping manufacturers show their commitment to the highest standards. Contact our experts about fire extinguisher Kitemark certification.
3) More businesses want one service provider for certification to access multiple markets
If this is the case for your business, then look no further than BSI. We can combine testing and certification making the process more streamlined for you. This is particularly the case when combining testing and certification against EN standards with AS standards for the Australasia market and SANS standards for the South Africa market. Talk to us about your requirements
4) Interest in certification for installers of fire detection soars
Two BSI clients, NAFFCO and Haven, were presented with their BSI Kitemark installer certificates during the show. Designed to reduce risk and demonstrate the value of a quality installation, we’re seeing a huge rise in interest in installer certification for fire detection systems, particularly in the UAE. If this could help your business stand out register your interest in our forthcoming seminar in the UAE on this subject.
5) New UAE market access requirements for PPE
All PPE manufacturers, importers and traders distributing products within the UAE must now comply with new guidelines and approved standards for the UAE Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Regulation. Listen to our recent webinar to learn more about the new UAE guidelines.
