"A lot of people think standards are just for big companies because they're complex, expensive tools. Nothing could be further from the truth" Howard Kerr, Chief Executive of BSI

BSI is committed to improved fire safety in S.A. and globally. As such they invest considerably in information sharing and supporting local NPO's (like the FPASA) in making significant inroads with regards to improved compliance with the law and best practice. 

The FPASA salutes BSI for once again supporting the FPASA at the annual InFIReS Conference.

  • Fire Engineering in South Africa 2020

    Though there is no tertiary qualification enabling the youth or experienced professionals in South Africa the opportunity to study this field via a typical 4-year degree program, the University of Stellenbosch's engineering department has launched an innovative and much-needed academic program, in an attempt to remedy this situation. Those studying in the field/s of civil or mechanical engineering, upon completion of their 4-year undergraduate degrees, may proceed to a Master's program specifically focussing on fire engineering in the South African context. Further, Dr. Richard Walls of the University of Stellenbosch has been involved in developing multiple short courses, which if attended, will greatly enhance the qualification/ competency of "fire engineers" in South Africa.
