Certification Bodies

HETAS

HETAS is the official body recognised by Government to approve biomass and solid fuel domestic heating appliances, fuels and services, including the registration of competent installers and servicing businesses.

Registered installers are trained and approved to UKAS standards and can self-certify that their work complies with the relevant building regulations. 

HETAS is the leading training provider for solid fuel, wood and biomass, offering comprehensive courses specifically designed for installers, chimney sweeps, retailers, specifiers, Local Authorities, Building Control officers and those involved in the wood fuel supply chain.

HETAS operates a government approved scheme for testing and approval of solid fuel and biomass appliances. 

The government approved Microgeneration Scheme (MCS) is designed to build consumer confidence in the growing renewables sector. HETAS runs both MCS installer and MCS appliance schemes covering biomass and solar thermal technologies. With the recent launch of the domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) now is the time to sign up!

The HETAS approved retailer scheme provides kudos for stove shops and showrooms, and aims to increase safety whilst promoting the reputation of good quality retailers. 

The HETAS Quality Assured Fuel Scheme provides a recognised quality standard for wood and biomass fuel quality. With categories for logs, briquettes, chips and pellets, the scheme provides consumers with confidence in fuel quality and sustainability.

Sweeps who are members of the National Association of Chimney Sweeps ( NACS), the Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps and the Association of Professional and Independent Chimney Sweeps (APICS) are listed in the HETAS Guide and can use the HETAS Approved Chimney Sweep logo.
