Mint Security Systems achieves BAFE approval

South Yorkshire based Mint Security Systems have achieved BAFE accreditation for the maintenance module from the National Security Inspectorate (NSI). This allows Mint Security Systems to maintain fire alarm systems to the current BAFE and BS 5839-1:2017 requirements and issue a certificate of compliance on completion.

To become an BAFE approved maintainer of fire alarms, companies have to be rigorously inspected twice a year to ensure they are maintaining quality standards, evidence that the maintenance engineers are fully conversant with BS 5839-1:2017 Section 6 and issue each system with a certificate of compliance. Recognised installers such as Mint Security Systems constantly meet British and European standards, and are also required to operate a 24 hour callout service.

Christoper Watson, Managing Director of Mint Security Systems said, “For over 10 years we have been industry leaders in the area of installing intruder alarms and CCTV, and now we are BAFE approved we can offer a complete package to our customers to service all 3 systems during one visit. As a BAFE approved contractor, our customers can rest assured knowing our highly qualified engineers will service your fire alarm to a high standard.”

Mint Security Systems can offer professional BAFE Fire Alarm servicing in our local area including the Sheffield, Nottingham, Lincoln, Derby, Chesterfield, Mansfield, Doncaster, Worksop, Retford, Newark and Rotherham areas of South Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire.

The National Security Inspectorate is the third party certification body for BAFE and  regulates their pool of approved companies by operating audits every 6 months. The thorough inspection includes checking all paperwork and processes, and half a day checking that engineers service fire alarm systems correctly. All fire alarm systems maintained have to be done to the  current  BS 5839-1:2017 standards  to complete the audit which Mint Security Systems recently passed in February. 

Only companies determined to be the best in their industry subject themselves to such regular and random inspections by a non profit organisation which works closely with BAFE and UKAS bodies.

As a direct result of the recent BAFE Accreditation Mint Security Systems have extended it’s engineering team by 2 and welcome Steve Questa and Mark Stocks to the company. They have also secured a contract with a national retailer to service fire alarms in over 300 stores nationally.
