Cirrus Research has announced that it has been awarded a shield to identify it as a member of the Registered Safety Supplier Scheme (RSSS).

Following compliance with a strict set of criteria, Cirrus will now be able to use the scheme shield to identify its organisation and products as ‘genuine and safe’.

Launched by the British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF) as part of its counterfeit and illegal products campaign, the scheme is designed to help buyers of safety-critical products to find quality supply sources and offers assurance that the products supplied are genuine and properly tested and certificated.

To achieve the status, approved registered safety suppliers will have fulfilled the following criteria: they will need to be BSIF members with an obligation to operate in a legal and ethical manner; they will have signed a formal and binding declaration, to be included in their quality manuals, stating that the safety products they offer are legal, fully comply with the PPE regulations and are appropriately CE marked; once the declaration has been made, they will have agreed to an independent audit of their quality-control procedures (ISO 9001) to check that the system is in place and allow the BSIF to make enquiries to their certified body.

If the company does not have ISO 9001, an audit of its products is carried out.

Any company that does not comply with these standards risks losing its RSSS shield and, possibly, membership of the BSIF.
