OFTEC receives Green Deal accreditation

The Oil Firing Technical Association (OFTEC) has been accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) to provide registration services to Green Deal installers.

Due to launch in October, the Green Deal scheme will only be available to registered Green Deal installers. A simple inspection process will now enable OFTEC registered technicians to add Green Deal to their registration

OFTEC director, Jacqueline Crawford, said: “We’ve worked hard to gain the UKAS accreditation which is a milestone in OFTEC’s development. It’s rewarding to know that UKAS has recognised the work that we do and also reassuring for our technicians to know that OFTEC is independently assessed to make sure we’re doing things right.”
