FOI 9489

Part P Installers

Request

· Your selection criteria for Part P and renewables installers on all tendering and contract based selection exercises (inclusive of Housing, Leisure & Culture, Health & Social, Education, Highways, Repair & Maintenance, Environmental Health, Building Control & Renewable Energy departments).

· Details on the process for obtaining approved status for Part P and renewables installers who are certified under Stroma Certification's Competent Person Schemes.


Stroma Certification is a DCLG approved certification body for installers and assessors. Our Competent Person Schemes, Microgeneration Certification Schemes, and Green Deal Assessor Organisation and Green Deal Installer certification schemes are all UKAS-accredited to ISO/IEC 17065: 2012.


Certain competitor organisations of ours are already on the approved lists (e.g. NAPIT and NICEIC) and we are seeking equal recognition for Stroma-certified members going through public sector contract and tendering processes.

Response

My apologies for the delayed response. We do not specifically use Part P installers. Most of our works will be routine repair and maintenance. We have recently tendered the contracts for the Council’s stock. The new contracts commenced on 4 June 2014.

As part of the selection process, the prospective service providers were asked to identify within the Method Statement response

• the method for ensuring the allocation of competent operatives
• their compliance with the Green agenda and the measures taken to reduce their environmental impact

We have had one specific scheme recently. We recently used Avalon Sustainable Energy Solutions to provide free cavity wall insulation to a high rise block. They were being funded by DCLG and provided general accreditation on their suitability for the work.
