Are AFFF Fire extinguishers an acceptable alternative to CO2?

Currently our Maintenance and Building Departments policy re: provision of Fire Extinguishers is to install only AFFF Fire extinguishers in our premises (Retail and Offices). They believe that this is an acceptable alternative to CO2 for electrical fire fighting purposes. We would be interested in hearing any views relating to this position.
