The AiS safe committee like Eurosafe UK had been concerned by the general lack of guidance regarding EN1143-1, EN1143-2 & EN1450 safe certifications & the confusion caused by the controversy surrounding some foreign test houses. After consultation with Mike Palmer founder member of Eurosafe UK and other members of the AiS Safe committee a course of action was agreed by AiS to help clarify and simplify matters, the committee approved the creation of an AiS Approved Safe Scheme being an extension to their annual Safe List.
Safe manufacturers, importers or principal distributors are invited to send copies of their certificates to AiS for scrutiny. If the certificates have been issued by the aforementioned organizations the safes are classed as ‘AiS Approved’. Once accepted they would receive a Certificate of Approval & be noted on future AiS Safe Lists as ‘approved’.
