BSI, the business improvement and standards company, has announced the launch of a collaboration with the FIA (Fire Industry Association) at the leading fire-safety exhibition, FIREX INTERNATIONAL on 17 May 2022.
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 confidently and easily identify the IoT devices they can trust to be safe, secure and functional. As part of this launch and to provide more support to organizations in this sector, BSI will also be implementing a platform for members of the FIA to benefit from discounts on fire safety training modules.
The collaboration follows the successful launch of the BSI Fire Safety and IoT Masters Academy where BSI and the FIA offered insights and a panel discussion on the IoT (Internet of Things) and its involvement in the fire industry.
Rob Hine, Head of Commercial Partnerships at BSI comments: ‘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.’
Renata Kopka, Marketing Manager at the FIA comments: ‘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.’
