Membership of the Certass Competent Person Scheme enables contractors to self-certify that their installations adhere to current Building Regulations as an alternative to submitting a building notice to the local authority or using an approved inspector.
Competent Person Schemes were set up by the government to provide an alternative to submitting a building notice or to using an approved Local Authority inspector for certain home improvements. Members of Competent Person Schemes are able to self-certify that their work meets current building regulations and are also able to register the work with the local authority on behalf of the homeowner.
All Certass registered contractors are vetted to ensure they are qualified to carry out installation work in accordance with the current building regulations and, once an installation is complete, Certass provides you with the Building Regulation Compliance Certificate for the work carried out. Certass Limited is a UKAS approved certification body for the operation of a Competent Person Scheme under a Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) license and a Green Deal Certification Body under licence from the Department for Energy and Climate change (DECC).
