Our IAAI accreditation ensures that all investigations are performed in accordance with the scientific method of the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association). We have put in place a continuous process, training and re-certification. Our experts are qualified and trained in giving evidence in court and arbitration.
BMT's specialists have been working in close cooperation with OBEG Fire Investigators, a long-standing partnership which has taken new shape in June 2018 (read more information here).
We offer fire investigations for marine fires, requiring specialist marine knowledge, as well as private property and industrial fires.

Investigating the cause of a fire on board a ship is complex and difficult, especially if most of the evidence has been destroyed by the fire itself.
Alongside our work in the marine sector, BMT has developed an extensive track record over more than 20 years, for investigating domestic and industry fires.
Not long ago, an expedition cruise ship grounded off a remote island; no one was hurt, there was no environmental impact and damage was minimal but the potential learning outcomes are huge. BMT’s Nick Dowden investigated and reports.
The potential opportunities and rewards are vast. Let’s change where we need to, let’s collaborate more. We will not just survive, but thrive!
Working at sea can be tough. Many of us will have had the opportunity to experience the cold, the wet, the heat, the constant motions, the cramped spaces and the isolation from home life.
