SAIFP is open for business in SA

June 2018 News, Fire & Safety

The South African Inspectorate for Fire Protection (SAIFP) is an approved inspection body accredited by the South African National Accreditation System (SANAS Accreditation No.: INSP0038) and offers inspection and certifications regimes for fire sprinkler protection systems throughout South Africa.

According to the SAIFP’s Clyde Becker, the idea for the SAIFP was born in the Fire Engineers Association of South Africa, which called for an independent body to handle the inspection and certification of fire sprinkler systems.

The organisation has spent the past 18 months attaining its certification and preparing to go to market in South Africa and is now in a position to take its certification services to the fire industry. The organisation has its own inspectors, which have been trained and certified through a rigorous process to conduct inspections and issue certifications for sprinkler systems, both old and new.

The inspectors will ensure that installations comply with ISO 17020:2012 and are carried out in accordance with SANS 10400 National Building Regulations as well as International Codes of Practice – and are 100% operational. Certificates issued are valid for a period of one year.

The SAIFP can be called in to inspect any installed system, whether requested to do so by corporate clients, insurers or even engineers or consultants in the industry.
