HETAS Ltd (heating equipment testing and approval scheme)
with its distinctive three-tick logo, is the official approval
body for the domestic solid fuel industry. Established in
1936, HETAS Ltd is a non-profit-making, independent body whose
primary function is to ensure that the highest possible standards
are maintained throughout the solid fuel heating industry
by regular testing and inspection of appliances, fuels and
other associated equipment used in the domestic market.
Why have the rules changed?
As part of the government’s drive to improve standards throughout
the construction industry and to further the conservation
of fuel and power, the existing building regulations covering
the installation of domestic heating equipment have undergone
a major revision. These new building regulations apply to
the installation of all new heating appliances and came into
force on the 1st April 2002.
Will standards be improved?
Historically, the vast majority of heating appliances even
by reputable companies have not been notified to local authorities
and as a result, have not been inspected by building control.
However, there are many thousands of installations carried
out each year by companies or individuals with little or no
experience, often to a poor standard, which may result in
unsafe or dangerous installations.
How will the Competent Persons scheme help customers?
HETAS Ltd with its long history of dealing with all matters
relating to solid fuel and appliances has developed a registration
scheme for companies and individual engineers involved with
installation of appliances and other related equipment. However,
it should be noted that not all the companies are registered
for the installation of central heating and some chimney lining
systems. It is therefore important to confirm what level of
registration the company has before placing your order.
Companies applying for membership to the HETAS Ltd
registration scheme will have to meet a number of conditions
before acceptance - The main conditions are:
• They will employ HETAS Ltd trained engineers
• That their workmanship (on inspection) is of a good standard
• They have the required level of Public Liability Insurance
• They respond to customer concerns in a positive way
Companies accepted into scheme membership do not need building
control approval. This should save you both time and money.
Sussex Woodstoves is fully HETAS Ltd registered for
the supply and installation of solid fuel stoves, and chimney
