OFTEC Insurance partners

Protect yourself with insurance

Insurance protects both you and your customers and creates confidence in your business.

OFTEC registered businesses must hold and maintain sufficient public liability insurance being no less than two million pounds sterling (£2.0m) or 2.8 million euros (€2.8m) at all times. If the insurance expires and is not maintained, or is invalidated, the registered business must inform OFTEC immediately and cease carrying out work under the OFTEC banner until cover is re-instated. Where design work is undertaken, it is recommended that the registered business holds a minimum of £250,000 Professional Indemnity Insurance or as appropriate for their scope of work.

Through our selected insurance partners, OFTEC offers specially negotiated business insurances for registered technicians and the businesses they work in.
