OFTEC launches solid fuel registration service!

OFTEC has announced it is to further extend its range of competent person registration services to include solid fuel appliances, following government approval by the Department for Communities and Local Government’s Building Regulations.


The move follows last year’s introduction of the service, which will encompass biomass technology later this year and will certainly be pertinent to installers who have taken up our pellet biomass qualification.


Commenting on the news, OFTEC registration services director, explained: “Our new solid fuel and renewable technology scopes of registration means we now offer more specialised support for installers working in a wider range of heating solutions, while continuing to provide the same high quality service we do now for our oil technicians.


“As the off-gas home energy market gradually becomes more diverse, OFTEC will remain the quality benchmark for installers, servicing technicians and homeowners alike.”


Membership benefits include:

  • Free technical support
  • Technicians are able to self-certify installations in accordance with Building Regulation
  • Reassure customers of a professional installation service.
