Provide advice

The ASFP was established in 1975 in recognition of the need to bring together manufacturers, contractors and passive fire protection testing/certification bodies to develop and encourage specific guidance on standards essential in the field of passive fire protection.

The ASFP serves and represents the needs of its members and the broader passive fire protection industry by raising standards and competencies through training, testing, certification and quality of facilities and maintenance delivered.

In addition, the organization aims to advance knowledge and advice on all aspects of “integrated” fire protection, provide unbiased technical assistance and advice, lead regulatory and behavioral change as an independent authority and also to improve skills and quality through training.
