NSI (ISO 14001 Environmental Management System) say – “The Environmental Standard BS EN ISO 14001 is designed to help companies meet their environmental legislation obligations. NSI's EMS Gold scheme identifies companies that achieve these and who strive for continual improvement in their environmental performance. The NSI Environmental Management Systems Scheme is UKAS accredited for application across our traditional areas of expertise as a sector specific body. It is therefore targeted at Security and Fire organisations that already hold our existing NSI QMS (Quality Management System) certification and additionally want to demonstrate their credentials with respect to the environment.”
BAFE say – “The scheme has been developed for the Third Party Certification of those organisations involved in fire detection and fire alarm systems. The scheme recognises the importance of providing compliant systems while at the same time minimising false alarms. BAFE's scheme objective is to provide a means by which fire protection system users and regulatory authorities can be confident that the companies providing fire alarm systems, have processes in place to effectively undertake such activities within their defined scope of work. The scheme document specifies conditions to be met by certificated organisations.”
