3rd party certification


Recommended Posts


Can anyone give advice regarding firestopping certification? 

As a small ltd company do i need to have 3rd party accreditation for doing firestop works? 

I am a level 2 nvq firestopper and have been offered a contract for some apartments. 

As long as i do the works to full spec and building control and the FSA are happy with the works can it be signed off? 


Or do i need a 3rd party accreditation such as FIRAS? 


I would be grateful for any help

You don't (currently although this could change) need it - but you may find in the future it severely limits the amount & type of work you may get in future as the fallout from Grenfell kickstarts the move towards customers only using third party certified suppliers.
