NAPFIS is committed to members’ ability to offer high quality installations of passive fire protection.

NAPFIS strongly believes that excellent education is the foundation of a trades person’s ability to deliver this high quality of installation. When you have completed a recognised training programme, you will be able to join NAPFIS (Nationwide Association of Passive Fire Installers and Specifiers), enabling you to self-certify your completed installations.

Legislation and the new Document B Building Regulations

New fire safety legislation requires building owners to take full responsibility for all aspects of fire safety within their premises. As part of their risk assessment process, they are required to ensure that elements of the building structure are suitably fire-rated. Thus, when passive fire protection seals are used, some sort of assurance of correct use and installation could be required from the trades person.

The new UK Building Regulations (Document B) also encourage independent schemes of certification, which is what NAPFIS seeks to provide. Building Control Officers will increasingly ask for evidence of correct installation of passive fire protection from trades people.

Therefore being a NAPFIS member will give you and your business the credibility & relevant skills to ensure that you are carrying out any passive fire work to an extremely high standard, whilst being able to provide a certificate to the building management to substantiate this.

You'll be able to carry out passive fire work with confidence. This will mean that your customers will trust in your abilities and therefore make you a more likely choice over someone who is not a NAPFIS member.
