BSI, the company behind British Standards, is to launch a collaboration with the FIA (Fire Industry Association) at the fire safety exhibition, Firex on day one of the three-day show, May 17, which runs alongside Ifsec.
The partnership will provide members of the FIA with discounts on certification to the BSI Kitemark for IoT Devices, which is designed to help consumers identify the IoT devices they can trust to be safe, secure and functional. As part of this launch and to provide more support to this sector, BSI will also set up a platform for members of the FIA to benefit from discounts on fire safety training modules.
This follows the launch of the BSI Fire Safety and IoT Masters Academy where BSI and the FIA offered a panel discussion on the IoT (Internet of Things) and its involvement in the fire industry.
Rob Hine, Head of Commercial Partnerships at BSI says: “We are delighted to be launching our partnership with the FIA at such a renowned industry event to better support their members. Certification and training will benefit organizations looking to develop, test or launch fire safety products into the market, and for those wanting to train their teams on fire safety. This collaboration builds on BSI’s existing relationship with the FIA and we look forward to continuing our work with the trade association to bring benefits to its members in the future.”
Ian Moore, FIA CEO adds: “The FIA is excited to be collaborating with BSI. Our partnership will offer FIA members a worthwhile discount on the BSI IoT Kitemark which is great step forward in incentivising the IoT in the fire safety industry. We look forward to continuing our work with BSI to bring more benefits to the UK fire safety industry.”
