Certification process
Certification of your company based on BRL-K21014 starts with an application, after which you receive a fee proposal. You can enter into a certification agreement with Kiwa based on this fee proposal. An independent acceptance assessment will then start. Kiwa assesses whether the criteria for certification are met after a thorough and independent acceptance audit. Certification follows upon a positive audit outcome. However, if non-compliances are identified, you shall rectify these first.

After the initial certification, annual inspections are conducted to establish that the certified processes and completed works continue to comply with the requirements of the 'BRL K21014 for aerosol fire extinguishing systems comprising an alarm management system with wireless communication for ‘at the source’ fire protection in enclosures containing electrical components’.
