TR19 Grease – Fire Risk Management of Grease Accumulation Within Kitchen Extraction Systems - Improving Standards, Ensuring Compliance & Competence


For many years the Insurance Companies and the Hospitality sector have recognised BESA’s TR19 as the guidance standard for cleaning of kitchen extraction systems. Unfortunately, though often quoted by some cleaning contractors, fire losses associated with un-cleaned grease extract systems still continue, especially where servicing to TR19 has been quoted or specified.

Recognising this devaluing of the “TR19 Brand” and the reputation of the Association, BESA has now, in consultation with InFiReS, The insurers’ Fire Research Strategy Scheme,  to develop a new and far reaching Specification for the fire safety cleaning of kitchen grease extraction systems.

Now for the first time contractors will have to show that the work is undertaken by accredited competent people and that contractors shall have to demonstrate that their work is certified by an independent Registering Body.

Learn what the New TR19 Grease requires including operative competence and registration of post cleaning certification via the BESCA Ventilation Hygiene Elite registration scheme.
