PAS 2030 Certification
What is PAS 2030?
PAS 2030 is the standard relating to improving the energy efficiency of existing buildings in the UK and specifies the installation process, process management and service provision and has been updated with new requirements from 2021. This includes providing evidence of your understanding of PAS 2035 which is the standard for retrofitting dwellings for improved energy efficiency specification and guidance. Prior to commencing an installation, under PAS 2035, the installer must confirm that a Retrofit Coordinator has been appointed.
You can download a free copy of the PAS2030 specification for installers, and PAS2035 aimed at the retrofit coordinators here PAS 2035/2030:2023
Registration with a PAS 2030 certification body is a requirement for businesses installing Energy Efficiency Measures (EEM) under Government funding schemes such as the Energy Company Obligation (ECO), Green Homes Grant or other Government funding schemes.
How to become PAS 2030 registered?
OFTEC is an accredited PAS 2030 certification body for liquid fuel heating installers. If you are already registered with OFTEC for the competent persons scheme, you can extend your registration to include PAS 2030. If you are not already registered with OFTEC, you will first need to complete an application form for competent persons registration.
PAS2030 requires registered businesses to operate a quality management system (QMS) in line with PAS 2030. If you do not already operate a QMS, TrustMark has published template documents and guidance that you can download for free to quickly and easily set up your own QMS.
Once your systems are set up and you have completed the application form below, your OFTEC regional inspector will carry out an initial evaluation of your business to the requirements of PAS 2030 which will include an on-site competency check of a registered technician and a completed energy efficiency measure installation.
Once registered, technicians are issued with a PAS 2030 Registration Certificate and ID badge and are listed on the Green Deal Oversight and Registration Body (GDORB) National Register as accredited installers.
Your business will be inspected every year to the requirements of PAS 2030 and, if you complete more than 100 installations of a particular Energy Efficiency Measure in any one year, additional surveillance will be required - this will be at an additional cost. Our registration team can provide more details.
