Fire Safety Certificate

Fire Safety Certificate is also called as the Certificate of Conformity to the Requirements of Fire Safety which is given to a building structure such as hospitals, educational institutions, government and private offices, factories, and residential apartments after the completion of a Fire Safety Audit.[1] The function of the given certificate is to prove conformity of the production to the approved rules of safety. In Russia the Certificate of Conformity to Requirements of Fire Safety may be received in the case when the production went through the procedure of certification tests after which their owner was provided with the protocol of the tests which serves as the base of issuing the Certificate. For each kind of production there are certain methods of tests and requirements which are described in the Fire Technical Reglament for some kind of goods.

What kinds of goods need the certificate? edit

Article 143 of the RF Federal Law 123 lists all the goods that need obligatory certification for conformity to fire safety. In spite of this, by his own initiative the customer may draw up the voluntary certificate of conformity to the requirements of fire safety. The whole process of receiving such certificate does not differ from the process of receiving the obligatory certificate.

Certification of fire safety is performed in accordance with the norms of technical rules existing for each kind of production.
