NICEIC chosen to provide Green Deal certification

NICEIC has been successful in its application to provide certification services for the Government’s Green Deal initiative.

It can now offer certification to any business wishing to become a Green Deal installer. NICEIC was one of 14 companies chosen to provide Green Deal certification in the first wave of official approvals by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS)

“We are delighted to have been chosen by UKAS for this important initiative,” said NICEIC CEO Emma Clancy. “Green Deal will be central to achieving the Government’s energy efficiency objectives. Tradespeople with competent skills will be key to delivering Green Deal and we look forward to offering them the opportunity to get involved at an early stage.”

More than 30 companies were invited to take part in a pilot programme with UKAS in November last year. The pilot was established to test the certification process and standards, which Green Deal certification bodies use to assure quality for Green Deal Advisors and businesses undertaking Green Deal installation work for consumers.

The Green Deal will incentivise householders and businesses to install energy efficient products by off–setting the cost through savings in energy bills.

To successfully deliver the Green Deal, a network of approved Green Deal Advisors and Installers will be needed. As part of its scope NICEIC can offer Green Deal installer certification in the required PAS2030 standard in virtually all of the services covered – including heating, lighting, insulation and micro-generation.

In addition, NICEIC is setting-up a series of workshops and training seminars specifically related to Green Deal.

“As a leading certifier of professional tradespeople we believe there is a real opportunity for our contractors with the appropriate expertise to benefit from Green Deal and also an opportunity for other tradespeople to become certified to undertake the Green Deal measures,” added Clancy. “The PAS2030 compliance already compliments many other government schemes such as the Competent Persons Schemes and the Microgeneration Certification Scheme. We believe there is a great opportunity for the people already with these skills to play a major part in Green Deal. We look forward to using our experience and knowledge of certification to make the Green Deal a success.”
