How Often Do Fire Extinguishers Need To Be Serviced?

There are two types of service for a Fire extinguisher. The first is a basic annual service and this is to be undertaken by a competent person as per British Standard 5306 Part 3.

Extended Service, Periodic Discharge Testing and Pressure Testing

The Second is an Extended service, which is to be conducted every five years. This is where a fire extinguisher is discharge tested (extended service or, for CO2, overhaul service) to make sure they actually work and are in good condition internally. Through good practice HSQE Consultancy do advise that you invest in new extinguishers, going forward this is actually cheaper than undertaking the discharge testing. Note: We will dispose of your old extinguishers free of charge.

Can I buy and install my own extinguishers?

Each fire extinguisher will need to be inspected by a competent person on the initial installation; better known as commissioning, stated in the British Standard 5306 part 3. Failure to have the extinguisher commissioned by a certified technician/engineer on site, runs the risk of invalidating fire insurance cover. It is also a requirement of a thorough risk assessment under the current Fire Regulations (Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005).
