Project Description

This proposal is to implement a professional accreditation body for biomass designers and installers, similar to where gas appliances may only be installed and serviced by Registered Gas Installers. The project's aim is to set up similar requirements for those engaged in biomass boiler design, installation and maintenance. The project will bring together key experts and stakeholders to draw up guidelines for installations and requirements for professionals who wish to be accredited. Once this is agreed it is then proposed to implement the programme and begin registering practitioners.
