Association for Specialist Fire Protection Ireland

The Association for Specialist Fire Protection Ireland (ASFPI) was established in 2011 to support those responsible for legislation, specification, inspection and installation of passive fire protection throughout Ireland.

ASFPI offers a structured and professional approach to passive fire protection, working with Government and industry alike to improve the knowledge base of all involved in the manufacture, approval, specification, installation and management of passive fire protection. Its mission is to be the leading authority for passive fire protection in Ireland for the purpose of protecting life, and property and sustaining the environment from the effects of fire.

ASFPI offers guidance, training and members forums, as well as participating in relevant events across Ireland.

    In 2017, the Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP) and Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to support their collaboration with the aim of creating a partnership of fire industry bodies to better serve the professional needs of members, the industry and society. The ASFP and the IFE seek to achieve this common commitment by improving the knowledge and professionalism of members through the provision of new qualifications which are jointly developed. The qualifications will be awarded by the IFE; supported by learning materials provided by ASFP; and jointly monitored by both partners. Both partners will develop plans to secure the success of the collaboration and will meet regularly to oversee the successful implementation and delivery of the new qualifications.
