HETAS is the official body recognised by government to approve solid fuel domestic heating appliances, fuels and services. Its work in approving products covers boilers, cookers, open fires and stoves and room-heaters. HETAS collaborates with the National Association of Chimney Sweeps (NACS) (http://www.chimneyworks.co.uk/) in supervising a solid fuel orientated course for chimney sweeps which results in successful candidates being "HETAS Approved". In association with the Solid Fuel Association (SFA), (http://www.solidfuel.co.uk/frame/800index.html) HETAS operates a registration scheme for heating engineers with special skills in the installation and maintenance of solid fuel heating systems.

GAS SAFE REGISTER - From 1st April 2009 if you are having gas work done in your home or workplace you should use a Gas Safe registered engineer.

The Gas Safe Register is the national watchdog for gas safety in the UK. It exists to protect you, your family, and your property from dangerous gas work. Incorrectly fitted, badly repaired or poorly maintained gas appliances are a major cause of lethal carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning, and can also lead to gas leaks and explosions. To carry out work on gas installations and appliances safely and legally, engineers in Great Britain and the Isle of Man must be on the Gas Safe Register. They make sure the 120,000 engineers on the register are safe by inspecting the gas work they have carried out.

Oil Appliances Governing Body

OFTEC is the oil firing technical association for the petroleum industry, and the installation of an oil fired appliance should be carried out by an OFTEC registered engineer. The Oil Firing Technical Association (OFTEC) was launched in April 1991 to construct a framework within which oil firing in the United Kingdom and Republic Of Ireland could operate with a greater degree of technical expertise and efficiency. All OFTEC installers are able to certify their own work so there is no need to notify local authority building control when installing an oil fired appliance.

Chimney Sweep Governing Body

NACS is the National Association of Chimney Sweeps. They are specialists in providing professional chimney sweeping as well as technical expertise for the safe operation and maintenance of chimney appliances and the installation of flue systems, stainless steel flexible liners and flue terminations. Before you purchase a new appliance that will be using an existing chimney or flue we recommend you get a registered chimney sweep to inspect it. This will ensure there are no leaks in the flue, the draught is good and the flue is structurally sound.

You have a resposibility to ensure that solid fuel and gas appliances installed in your home are compliant with the relevant building regulations and manufacturers guildlines. For advice about installation of your stove or fireplace, please contact your qualified installer. It is advisable when contacting installers to check that their qualifications and insurance are up to date.
