“It’s such an exciting time for Simply Certification. Having joined the business only in June 2022 I’ve first hand experience of seeing the customer base growing substantially across all standards that the business offers.

We’re uniquely positioned in that our focus and expertise is within the built environment – particularly around sustainability – delivering a range of ISO standards as well as PAS 2030 and now MCS – which is a particular strong combination adding huge value to our customers.

On top of this, due to us being recognised for our ethos around quality and supportive approach, we are forming strong partnerships within industry that will also compliment our schemes which all will be announced soon.”

Our mission was to be the certification body of choice for businesses that operate within the Built Environment sector, and we’re certainly making waves!

Over the last few months I’ve been working closely with a range of stakeholders to help grow the UK supply chain within retrofit and we have a number of projects coming to fruition enabling the pathway to certification and compliance to be a much smoother process and remove perceived barriers.”

The need for “Green Compliance” has never been as urgent

With the price of fuel escalating and the urgency to address climate change compliance around green standards has never been in as much demand.

When we launched in 2020 it was our aim to be the certification body of choice within the wider construction sector, with a strong focus around standards that support the drive of decarbonisation and energy efficiency.

Not just a certificate

Gaining compliance and certification is not just about showcasing to stakeholders that your organisation is serious about green strategies – but a real opportunity to:

  • Perform better as an organisation
  • Be more efficient, increasing profit margins
  • Qualify for frameworks, funding and contracts

Which certification is right for your organisation?


Who needs this?

Most organisations that are responsible for their own energy use, such as office facilities, hospitals, retail and leisure parks, schools and universities, industrial and manufacturing plants.

What it is

The new ISO 50001 standard for energy management systems can help safeguard our future by making a positive difference in the here and now.

ISO 50001 provides a framework of requirements for organisations to:

  • Develop a policy for more efficient use of energy
  • Fix targets and objectives to meet the policy
  • Use data to better understand and make decisions about energy use
  • Measure the results
  • Review how well the policy works, and
  • Continually improve energy management


Who needs this?

Contractors who install insulation, windows, gas and electrical measures relating to making a building more energy efficient.

What it is

Contractors are moving quickly to gain PAS 2030 alongside TrustMark registration as more and more framework agreements and contracts are emerging stating the need to have certification for PAS 2030.


Who needs this?

Installers, designers, architects and principle contractors who are responsible for the design of the retrofit of energy efficiency measures in domestic buildings.

What it is

PAS 2035 is the requirement around the assessment and design of an energy efficiency retrofit installation. This is interlinked to PAS 2030.


Who needs this?

Designers, architects and principle contractors who are responsible for the design of the retrofit of energy efficiency measures in commercial buildings.

What it is

Published in 2021, PAS 2038 this is crucial in driving down the energy use in existing building stock. With commercial buildings being much more complex than domestic, this standard helps on the impact of energy use within hospitals, schools, retail parks, leisure facilities and office space via the retrofit of energy efficiency measures.


Who needs this?

Most organisations have an impact on the environment and ISO 14001 is suitable for a wide range of businesses.

What it is

ISO 14001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system (EMS). It provides a framework that an organisation can follow to help drive efficiencies across the business.


Who needs this?

Architects, designers, contractors and facilities management. It is quickly becoming a recognised standard across the globe for those in the built environment.

What it is

Working within ISO 19650 showcases that your organisation works towards best practice within a construction and facilities management program.

It also enables your business to reduce unnecessary costs through wasted resources and time, also having a positive impact on the environment.
