Applus+ Laboratories has been accepted as a member of the ASFP, the UK’s primary trade association for the fire-protection industry. ASFP membership will afford Applus+ even closer ties with the UK’s fire-safety market, of which the main manufacturers of passive fire-protection products already number among our clients.
The ASFP is a collaborative body that works to define British Standards (BS) relating to fire protection as well as installation protocols for fire-protection products
and the criteria for undertaking related consultancy work in the UK. The ASFP Board’s approval of our membership application has given Applus+ a seat on key technical committees, putting us in a position to influence the technical detail of British testing standards.
The Applus+ Fire Laboratory has for some time been accredited to perform the vast majority of BS passive fire-protection tests. British Standards are not only in force in the UK, but also in much of the Commonwealth as well as in a number of Middle Eastern countries.
