About FDIS


FDIS is Europe’s first fire door inspection scheme. It was launched in 2012 and is a joint venture delivered by the British Woodworking Federation (BWF) and the Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI). We aim to transform people’s knowledge about how and why fire doors work and the potential dangers of getting it wrong.

To date, over 1500 people have signed up to study online, with successful learners being awarded the FDIS Diploma in Fire Doors.
