NAPIT is an organisation committed to householder safety in the domestic sector and ensures that through the competence of our registered installers, householders can be confident the work carried out on their home complies with the relevant regulations.

Search for a Registered Installer.

NAPIT provide a simple, fast search service so that you can find a tradesperson in your area that you know you can rely on. You can also use our Jargon Buster to ensure you understand the terminology used by NAPIT and our registered installers.

NAPIT registered installers work under a Government-approved Competent Person Scheme (CPS) to notify any electrical, plumbing, heating or ventilation works undertaken on your home to your Local Authority Building Control, in accordance with Building Regulations.

NAPIT are also UKAS accredited for the certification of Installers under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) as well as Installers and Assessor Organisations wishing to operate under the Green Deal.

Microgeneration is the application of renewable energy technologies on a small scale, suitable for domestic properties, such as Solar Photovoltaics (PV), Solar Thermal Hot Water, Wind Turbines, Heat Pumps (ground and air source), Biomass Combustion and Micro-CHP. These technologies often compliment conventional energy and heating technologies or sometimes completely replace it. The NAPIT Microgeneration Certification Scheme allows Installers to fit renewable energy technologies and self-certificate their work in accordance with Building Regulations, whilst allowing the householder to access financial incentives.

The Green Deal is the Government's flagship policy for improving the energy efficiency of buildings in Great Britain. It now covers more than 45 renewable technology and energy efficiency 'measures'. The Green Deal Certification scheme will allow the installations and Green Deal Advice Reports, of Green Deal Installers and Advisors respectively, to qualify for Green Deal finance.

Your Safety is Important to us.

NAPIT constantly strive to increase public awareness of the inherent dangers of poorly installed work and the potential dangers posed by non-competent tradespeople.

NAPIT operate a comprehensive and rigorous Code of Practice for our registered installers, who are assessed on a yearly basis to ensure they continue to work to the highest standards.

A job can be safe, comply with Regulations and still be done to a low standard, which is why NAPIT offer a Work Quality Guarantee scheme to give you peace of mind; details of which appear on the Compliance Certificate issued by NAPIT on behalf of our registered installers when the work has been completed. The Work Quality Guarantee Scheme covers notified works should the registered installer be unable to rectify the works because they are no longer in business.

Proven protection.

NAPIT issue you with a Certificate of Compliance for the work carried out on your property and NAPIT also update your Local Authority Building Control department, which will also help with the sale of your house, should you decide to move in the future.

NAPIT Registered Installers working in the domestic sector have the option to sign up to a consumer code of practice that complies with the Government's award winning anti-cowboy TrustMark Scheme and confirms that NAPIT Registered Installers work to good health and safety practices, monitor quality and customer care and hold the correct insurance documentation at all times.

By using a NAPIT-registered installer you can rest assured the work done on your home will be safe, comply with current Regulations and be done to the highest quality standard.

Please note: the NAPIT Work Quality Guarantee is only applicable to notified works under Competent Person Schemes and additional terms and conditions apply.
