Recognised Businesses

Recognised Business (Inspect and Test)


In parallel with the introduction of individual accreditation within the Inspect and Test class, an FPA Australia Corporate Member can gain Recognised Business status.


Recognised Business status is awarded to business entities that are Corporate members of the Association and are investing in the skills, knowledge and experience of those fire protection professionals engaged in the business, thereby supporting them in achieving individual accreditation.


Businesses recognised by the Scheme only engage appropriately accredited fire protection professionals to conduct inspect and test work in those categories for which the business provides services.


Accordingly, business entities that meet the FPAS Recognised Business criteria will be acknowledged as:


•    Being capable of delivering quality professional services as they engage FPAS accredited individuals; and

•    Supporting the industry pathway to increased quality and professionalism by ensuring its fire protection workforce is accredited through the Scheme and moving towards all individuals gaining FPAS Inspect and Test Qualified Accreditation.
