With over 30 years in the fire protection sector, our Standards & Compliance Director, Chuck Lewis was the recipient of the Member Contribution of the Year Award at December’s Passive Fire Protection Awards. Presented by the BBC’s Steph McGovern, this well-deserved accolade reflects Chuck’s continued support of the ASFP, as well as his long-serving commitment to advancing fire safety standards and his participation in numerous international technical committees.

IFC Group continues to expand its operational capacity by welcoming new team members to its ever-expanding Fire Engineering and Fire Risk Management departments. IFC Certification has also welcomed new starters as we continue to see increases in interest and enrolment in our range of third party certification schemes.

Continuing the new series of IFC Technical Notes, January 2019 saw the release of Technical Note #3 aimed at demonstrating the capabilities of producing competent Engineering Assessments. The note highlights the knowledge and experience required in this field, and touches upon the benefits and increasing importance of independent fire engineering opinion within the construction framework.

Past Technical Notes including: Orientation of Timber Fire Door Testing; and Orientation of Steel Doors can be found on the IFC website.
