REQUIREMENTS FOR PASSIVE FIRE PROTECTION SURVEYING AND CONFORMITY
LIFE & BUILDING SAFETY
Most importantly, containing fire as part of a building fire strategy plan allows time for occupants to evacuate safely and fire crews to enter and extinguish a fire before it develops. Intumescent coating systems protect building structures from collapse. Fire Compartmentation saves lives.
Ensuring that the passive fire protection systems have been installed and certified to a compliant standard by a third-party accredited company is a requirement for a certificate of conformity. It is a legal requirement that the building owner or manager has a compliant system in place, and it is the legal obligation of the installer to ensure that fire protection systems are installed to a compliant standard.
A certificate of conformity can be provided by a third-party accredited company upon approval of a compliant fire protection system, it is a legal requirement that an up-to-date certificate be obtained to confirm that the building compartmentation systems have been installed and intumescent coatings have been applied to compliant specifications. Certificates are underwritten by a third-party accredited body obtained by the fire protection contractor.
A certificate of conformity confirming compliance as part of a fire risk assessment can only be a positive factor in reducing insurance premiums and in some situations will be a requirement for insurance cover. Fire compartmentation is proven to protect buildings from total loss in the event of a fire.
For commercial and residential buildings occupied by third parties in the United Kingdom it is a legal requirement to have your passive fire protection system certified. The responsibility for this falls on the building owner or management. You must ensure that your fire compartmentation system is implemented by a third-party accredited company to manufacturers specifications.
