The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) has approved this first wave of companies which will be able to offer certification to any business wishing to become a Green Deal installer.
More than 30 companies were invited to take part in a pilot by UKAS in November with Green Deal expected to be launched in October.
“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.
“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.
“We look forward to using our experience and knowledge of certification to make the Green Deal a success.”
