Any installer wishing to join the Green Deal framework and work on Government backed schemes such as the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) programme, must get Green Deal accredited by an official certification body before any installations are carried out.
To achieve Green Deal accreditation, installers must meet the standards outlined in PAS2030 for the Green Deal measures they wish to install - PAS2030 is a quality standard relating to the installation of energy efficiency improvements.
Installers must register with an official Green Deal certification body to complete PAS2030. The assessment undertaken by the certification body will examine your business’s quality management system as well as on-site installations of each of the measures you wish to install.
The cost is typically between £500 and £2,500 depending on the certification body used and number of measures assessed.
For installers holding MCS certification to install microgeneration measures, only the additional standards outlined in the MCS Standard 023 need to be met to gain Green Deal Installer certification for those measures. Some certification bodies offer businesses Green Deal certification free of charge if they have used them for their MCS certification. Others charge a small admin fee.
The MCS Standard 023 can be downloaded free of charge from the MCS website.
Your chosen accreditation body will register you for Green Deal with the official Green Deal Oversight and Registration Body. Once you have received your certificate, you can connect to a Green Deal Provider.
Green Deal Orb is the official website for the Green Deal Oversight and Registration Body (GEMSERV) that will be processing all Green Deal installer applications.
