The Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP) is the UK's leading trade association for passive fire protection. The ASFP serves and represents the needs of its members and the wider passive fire protection industry, by raising safety, competence and standards through best practice, training, testing, certification and quality of installation for the benefit of all.

It aims to offer the industry it serves by advancing knowledge and guidance on all aspects of ‘built-in' fire protection; providing technical support and impartial advice; leading regulatory and behavioural change through industry authority and improving competence and quality through training. 

The Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP) will be welcoming visitors to the ASFP Passive Fire Protection Zone; which brings together in one location a number of ASFP member companies, representing a cross section of the passive fire protection sector.

The Zone will allow visitors to gain a greater understanding of the essential role of passive fire protection within today's built environment and offers advice for all involved from designers, specifiers and contractors, to building owners, risk assessors and facilities managers. It will encourage greater cooperation at every stage of the design and build process and throughout the life of a building. 

The ASFP will be showcasing its range of services, including its training courses; publications; technical advice and membership. The ASFP's Foundation Course in Passive Fire Protection aims to equip candidates with the knowledge required to demonstrate competency, while also offering a route for progression and academic recognition in this key fire protection specialism.  The Level 2 and Level 3 qualifications are the only internationally recognised qualifications in passive fire protection. The qualifications are examined and awarded by the Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE) awarding organisation, which is regulated by the qualification regulators Ofqual and CCEA.

 

The ASFP will also be showcasing its new e-learning course, which consist of 13 online video. The Online Introduction to Passive Fire Protection is designed to equip installers or new entrants to the sector with a basic knowledge of passive fire protection and its role in the overall fire strategy of a building.


This year the ASFP will also be hosting a series of Practical Workshops as well as a Lunchtime Lecture each day featuring a keynote address from a guest speaker. Workshops will include:

·        Protecting building infrastructure

·        Firestopping

·        Auditing & upgrading existing protection

·        Fire door considerations

·        Managing PFP maintenance & risk assessment

·        Specifying the right product

 

ASFP CEO Niall Rowan will also be speaking in the Firex Expertise & Guidance Theatre from 10.45-11.15 on Wednesday 19 June and 11.10-11.40. The seminar sessions will focus on the Government Response to Hackitt and Competency in Passive Fire Protection.

What's new at the Fire Industry Association for 2019?

The Fire Industry Association (FIA), Europe's largest trade association for the fire protection sector, has lots of new and exciting things for visitors at FIREX. 

Those visiting the stand will be pleasantly delighted at the new and improved FIA Bar, where guests can relax, unwind, have a drink, and catch up with new and old colleagues. It's a great space for networking and a great space to meet with other members of the Association.

Membership of the FIA has been growing at an exponential rate over the last year – over 800 companies nationwide are now members, with some joining from outside the UK. Membership of the FIA has some excellent benefits – use of the FIA logo on all your marketing materials such as your website and vehicles for added credibility, discounts on British Standards and all FIA training and qualifications, and access to exclusive members-only technical councils, working groups, and events.

Known throughout the industry as the hub of technical excellence, the FIA has a wealth of technical expertise on a range of areas from fire detection and alarms, to extinguishing systems, to fire risk assessment and more. If you have a technical question, visit the FIA stand to have a chat with a technical manager who will be able to provide you with technical advice and guidance.

Lastly, but certainly not least, visit the FIA stand to have a chat about the qualifications that the FIA has to offer. Qualifications are all Level 3 on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), and will qualify a technician to design, install, maintain, or commission fire detection and alarm systems. 

Each qualification is comprised of four units of study – the Foundation unit, Health and Safety, Environmental, and one specialist advanced unit from a list of four options: Designer, Installer, Maintainer, or Commissioner. The selection of the specialist unit will determine the qualification gained (Installer gets you a qualification in fire detection and alarm installation, and so forth).

New for 2019 is the addition of an FIA ECS card – which lists all qualifications gained on the back of the card and features the FIA logo. 

The FIA will be presenting a number of seminars at FIREX where you can learn more about the qualification structure, topics studied, and any required pre-learning, as well as the new FIA ECS card. You can also find out more about any of the above – and pick up a prospectus – at the FIA bar, where FIA staff will be on hand to explain the courses in detail and help you with any training requests.
