10/10/2013 The FIA has released two free whitepaper guides on the importance of third-party certification for businesses and people purchasing fire safety products or services.
Third-party certification can give customers significantly more confidence in the competence of the suppliers they are looking to use to provide fire safety services or products. This is crucial because the law states that the buyer of a fire safety service has to ensure that the supplier is "competent." Proving that they have ensured a level of competence could be crucial if something were to go wrong and the customer were to end up in court. Visit to download the guides: www.fia.uk.com
