Fire Aware Charters

Specialist Contractors Charter

This charter is aimed specifically at companies who are considered specialists in their field and are accredited to a regulatory body to demonstrate their compliance.

This Charter recognises the difficulty customers have in understanding the technical nature of fire safety delivery and promotes awareness within the specialist contractors to engage their customers with simple terminology and clear language to ensure they are clearly understood.

It also promotes specialists to be particularly diligent in their assessment of defective works they are contracted to rectify.
