To be legal you are going to need;

1. A fire risk assessment to detail what type of fire detection systems you need
2. A BAFE SP203 approved fire detection systems company (such as WFP)
3. You will benefit greatly from accurate drawings to design you fire detection systems
4. You will need a design to be created, otherwise any tender will differ in quantity and make it difficult to compare costs
5. You must consider the manufacturer of equipment as this will cost you a great deal of money if you choose unwisely, the golden rule is to make sure that any BAFE SP203 company or your choosing can fully maintain the fire detection system you choose.
