AFIS was born from the association of the technical capacities of Abaco International Loss Adjusters, Agar and Arson Invespaña to provide services as companies specialized in the investigation of the cause of accidents.
The purpose of AFIS is to provide comprehensive assessment services, focusing on the causes of accidents occurring in any activity or stage of the production process, including the finished product. This provision extends to incidents regarding fires, explosions, constructions, assemblies, electromechanical machinery breakdowns and industrial, maritime and aeronautical facilities.
To carry out the Research Study of accident causes, AFIS uses the resources of its affiliated companies which are complemented with the intervention of laboratories and qualified specialists when necessary.
As already mentioned, Arson Invespaña, a partner company of AFIS, specializes in investigating the causes of fires and explosions, with a wide experience in this field.
It is led by its director, Mr. Julio Hato, Chief Inspector of the Spanish National Scientific Police and Police Technical Investigation, who was also Head of Research of the Fire Brigade in the Scientific Police Headquarters of the Police of Western Andalusia from 1988-2007.
