"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.

Please note that extracts of tabulated data are sourced from SANS 10090: Community Protection Against Fire.
