Everything You Need To Know About the Bomba License
ABomba License is a sticker that is adhered on a fire extinguisher that is issued by the Fire Department of Malaysia (BOMBA) . Each fire extinguisher has to be inspected by a Bomba official at a station (balai) before it is issued with a Bomba License.
Sample of Bomba License on a fire extinguisher
There are 2 types of Bomba Licenses
1. The "birth" Bomba License
The ‘birth’ Bomba License is issued for new fire extinguishers, where the fire extinguisher is given a ‘birth place’ (The location where the fire extinguisher will be placed). The Bomba License is not company specific but rather location specific. Meaning that if you have vacated a premise that is rented, the extinguishers are rightfully left and placed at the premise and not to be taken away. Need a new extinguisher? Get them here!
2. The renewal Bomba License
The renewal Bomba License is issued on a yearly basis by the Bomba. How this is done is that the fire extinguisher has to be serviced by an authorized Competent Person and the extinguishers have to be inspected by the Bomba Officials before the license is issued. We're an appointed Competent Company! You get your extinguishers serviced with us here.
How do you get a Bomba License?
A Bomba License has to come together with a fire extinguisher. You cannot purchase a Bomba License on its own. A fire extinguisher with an authentic Bomba License can only be acquired through an authorized Competent Organization that has gone through the fire extinguisher inspection course by the Bomba in collaboration with UPM & MFPA. Renewal of Bomba Licenses can also be acquired through these authorized Competent Organizations.
Do you need it?
A bomba license is only needed if your extinguishers are being used in a commercial location, meaning in premises where a business is being operated. It is NOT needed if it is placed in a location that is moving - i.e, a moving vehicle.
You will need a Fire Extinguisher with a Bomba License if you are running a business. Only Competent Persons (as authorized by the Bomba) can issue these Bomba Licenses for your extinguishers. A Bomba License has to be renewed on a yearly basis to ensure the fire extinguishers can work when needed.
