The All You Need to Know about Guide for 3rd Party Accreditation


Did you know that there are approximately 22,000 workplace fire-related incidents with approximately 423 every week within the United Kingdom? Every year the statistics have proven how there has been a constant increase in the number of incidents that were related to fire. 

Therefore, it is only natural that authorities who are entrusted to safeguard buildings and their inhabitants against fire actively seek ways that provide some sort of safety in the case there is a fire-related incident.

But, is there any other intervention that can help maintain the integrity of the systems that are responsible for either resisting or stopping fire completely? 

3rd party accreditations were put in place as a deliberate step to ensure that all proactive measures are in place to uphold the integrity of both passive and active fire security systems. In this blog, we’ll walk you through the basics of 3rd party accreditations in fire safety, their importance etcetera. 

What Does 3rd Party Accreditation Mean For Fire Safety?


3rd party accreditation or certification can be better understood as a best practice where every installation, maintenance, and product with respect to active and passive fire systems is either carried out or supplied by an individual who is certified by a legally acceptable body, audited on a regular basis and is competent to be dealing in the trade of fire-safety. 

Why Is 3rd Party Accreditation Important?

We can think of 3rd party accreditation as a means to ensure quality control and assist you in meeting your fire safety standards as defined in the legislation. It provides unbiased confirmation and proof that a business is capable and is following the right standards and best practices when it comes to fire safety.

How does Onetrace Assist In Managing Accreditation?
