Why Choosing a Third Party Accredited Company is Vital to your Business?
Fire safety is all about protecting life and property.
It is legal requirement for the purchaser of fire safety services to ensure that the person or organisation carrying out the work is competent.
Third Party Certification (TPC) is evidence that a service or product adheres to certain standards. An independent expert, the third party, has assessed the service or product and certified that it complies with those standards.
In the UK, the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) validates the authority of the CB. It is an internationally recognised organisation appointed by the government to accredit certification bodies and the schemes they deliver.
Ensuring you use competent suppliers is both a legal requirement and a practical necessity. Getting it wrong can be very costly through fines, legal costs, loss of property and loss of business. By seeking out suppliers with TPC, the risk is substantially reduced.
