PAS 2030 will help demonstrate high quality service to all your potential customers
Gaining PAS 2030 is a straight forward process, you just need the right elements in place
Gaining certification for the standard will open up many doors for your business. There is a huge drive to get existing homes more energy efficient to meet the targets of the UK being carbon neutral. To get these homes up to standard, millions of pounds of funding is around in the form of public and private sector contracts and through the Energy Company Obligation (ECO). However to benefit from these opportunities you need to be PAS 2030 certified.
PAS 2030 isn’t as complex as you may think and you probably just need a little more clarity around what it entails:
The first step is to make sure you have a Quality Management System (QMS) in place that meets the standard. If you do not have one, don’t worry! In the first instance you can download this PAS 2030 Checklist to find out if you need to purchase a QMS or if you already of the right documents in place.
A Quality Management System (QMS) in simple terms is ‘paperwork’. This paperwork is in the form of company policies, working procedures and forms. You need to complete this paperwork to demonstrate that you are meeting the standard of PAS 2030.
The next step is to ensure that you have a qualified Retrofit Co-ordinator to oversee the assessment and design aspect before any work under PAS 2030 commences. They need to follow the PAS 2035 standard which is all about the assessment and design of the installation. If you don’t have a Retrofit Coordinator, there are a number of organisations/freelancers that provide this service that you can subcontract to.
Next you need to ensure competence of all of your installers and operatives. This means they need to have the relative qualifications and certifications to carry out the measures which you are installing.
To make sure you are compliant you will need the relevant documentation to prove that you are insured correctly.
Once you have all of your paperwork in place, then you are ready for your first stage of assessment! To progress with this, you just need to complete our online application. Once our PAS team receive this, they will be in touch to provide a price and a quotation for the assessment process.
Once you gain certification, there are so many benefits!
There is a little leg work required to make sure you have all the right foundations in place, however most of the elements required, you probably already have! It’s just a case of formalising this all to get your business to a place where it is fully compliant. Gaining PAS 2030 provides you with so many more benefits, opportunities and will help your business enter and become successful in a growing market.
It will ensure that you qualify to install under various schemes such as ECO as well as pre-qualifying for tenders
