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