Green Deal is the Government's flagship policy to improve the energy efficiency of the UK housing stock. It allows householders to avoid some of the upfront costs associated with energy saving home improvements, allowing them to pay back these costs through savings made on their energy bill.

Green Deal Installer Scheme (GDI)

Green Deal Installer membership allows you to complete work for customers whose property has had a Green Deal assessment and subsequently has had finance for measures approved. As a Green Deal Installer you may specialise in one or multiple energy efficiency improvement measures. A number of other government financial incentives require approved installers under this scheme, including the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) and various grants such as the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund.

Scheme Requirements

The following general conditions must be met:

Relevant Standards – Green Deal Standard PAS 2030 and compliance with the Green Deal Code of Practice. PAS 2030 has to be purchased from the BSI website but the Code of Practice can be downloaded from the Green Deal ORB website.

Legal Requirements - Green Deal Certification for Installers is covered by the Green Deal Framework Regulations. In England and Wales many of the measures are notifiable under the Building Regulations.

Qualifications - the annexes of PAS2030 refer to Minimum Technical Competence (MTC) requirements for each type of work, which must be met. Alternative routes for demonstrating compliance are described.

Insurance - You must have at least £2m Public Liability Insurance and you must have confirmed with your insurance company that the liability cover is adequate for the scale and scope of work done under the scheme.

Instruments – You must have access to sufficient instruments to carry out tests relevant to your scope of work as well as an in date calibration certificate for your equipment where applicable.

Technical Reference Documents – You must hold some and have access to other documents relevant to the type of work carried out, as detailed in PAS 2030.

Inspection – You will need to have procedures and records in place to demonstrate that your installation processes, process management, service provision and claims of conformity comply with PAS 2030. You must also make available installation activity which demonstrates your ability to deliver the installation service in accordance with PAS 2030 and the relevant measure-specific annex.

The inspection requirements are documented in PAS 2031 (please note that you are not required to hold a copy of PAS2031). If you carry out a high volume of work, additional inspections will be required as this standard requires a sample of one per cent of installations carried out.

Notification - You must notify NAPIT of all Green Deal work within seven days of completion (as stated in the Code of Practice) if the work category is notifiable under the England and Wales Building Regulations. NAPIT’s system will also automatically certify the work as compliant. If the work PAS 2030 is not Green Deal financed (e.g. ECO) it can still be certificated as complying with the Building Regulations

Website Listing - Once successfully certified, your business will be added to Participant Register of the Green Deal Oversight and Registration Body and the NAPIT online search facility.

How Green Deal Certification relates to CPS

Green Deal approval with NAPIT can allow companies to self-certify that the measures they install comply with the relevant Building Regulations, without any further scheme fees or assessment. But additional fees and assessment do apply if installation work extends beyond the installation of Green Deal ‘measures’ (such as house rewires, heating oil storage etc).

How Green Deal relates to the MCS

MCS approved installers can become Green Deal approved for microgeneration work through their MCS approval, as described in the Microgeneration Certification Scheme. If approval is sought for other measures covered by PAS 2030 the quality management system under MCS 001 and MCS 023 can be used and only the technical annex of PAS 2030 would need to be demonstrated.
