Fire certification and CERTIFIRE schemes
Warrington Certification is a globally-respected provider of both mandatory and voluntary fire certification schemes.
In addition to a comprehensive service in mandatory fire certification, it provides a programme of voluntary third-party certification schemes beginning with CERTIFIRE. As the only truly international independent fire certification scheme, we can give you assurances on the performance and reliability of the fire protection of your products.
Closely related is CERTISECURE , which supports the police sponsored “Secured by Design” initiative applying to manufacturers and suppliers. Certification confirms the performance of hardware items such as locks, cylinders, and handles under attack during burglary, and achieving CERTISECURE status provides the necessary confidence in a products ability to deliver.
The FIRAS scheme has been instrumental in improving the installation standards of passive and active fire protection products. The revised EN 13381 is a key European and British standard and Exova Warringtonfire offers tests and assessments at our dedicated testing and technical facilities in Warrington, UK.
FRACS is a quality assurance scheme aimed at companies offering fire risk assessment services and who wish to differentiate their business from competitors through independent certification. It not only examines the competence of personnel but also assesses the quality management systems and procedures operated within your company. Once certified, you are recognised for assuring high standards of service and competence to your clients. We support your ambitions by offering the only UKAS accredited schemes in the UK.
Our independent fire inspection service provides confidence to regulators and enforcement authorities alike. ISO 9001 is offered exclusively to those companies who hold product or installer certification with us.
