Warringtonfire’s FIRAS scheme for installers has been instrumental in improving the installation and maintenance standards of passive and active fire protection products and systems. FIRAS is the mark of endorsement of competency in the installation of products and systems, vital for achieving the protection required.

FIRAS is voluntary, third party certification scheme for installation contractors of both passive and active fire protection systems, operated by Warringtonfire certification and accredited by UKAS to BS EN ISO/IEC 17065:2012.

Why choose a FIRAS certificated installation contractor?

FIRAS certified contractors are required to undergo a three-stage assessment process, and, only when the applicant contractor has satisfied all of these criteria is certification granted:

  • Assessment of office management systems
  • Assessment of workmanship of site for all trade disciplines for which certification is sought
  • Competence assessment of supervisory and installation employees.

FIRAS certified contractors are subject to an annual audit of their offices and ongoing, random surveillance site inspections where competence and workmanship are assessed.
