BRITISH STANDARDS & CE MARK
The supply and service of portable fire extinguishers on customer’s premises are covered by two main standards.
British Standard 5306 Part 3
British Standard Part 8
The potential issues of a failure to operate when needed to both your business and ours cannot be understated, hence our strict adherence to the relevant British Standard.
For more information on these standards and the others that may apply to your business, speak to your Firewatch account manager or to one of our BAFE extinguisher technicians.
For further information on BS please check their website
The CE Mark is administered by the European Union.
By placing the CE mark on products, the manufacturer is warranting that the product meets the minimum EU standards set down for that product.
The CE Mark does not mean that a product is safe. It means it has been designed to meet safety standards, for example, if it is a fire, then it has the appropriate fire guard built in, but you must ensure that it is still operating safely.
