Live since 1 October, The SP101 Competency of portable fire extinguisher organisations and technicians scheme has introduced additional technical competence to the revised sections of BS 5306, relating to fire extinguishing installations and equipment on premises.
And it introduces requirements for training in asbestos awareness and health and safety procedures.
The technician competency portfolio used by BAFE assessors has also been reviewed and strengthened in order to protect the BAFE Diploma s status as a gold standard in the industry.
