- About Us
For the purposes of the water fittings regulations/byelaws approved contractor schemes are voluntary organisations for plumbers and plumbing contractors set up in accordance with regulation 1(2) of the water fittings regulations/byelaws. Approved contractors are either approved by a water undertaker or an organisation appointed by a regulator.
There is no mandatory requirement for plumbers to join a scheme.
There are currently six approved contractor schemes, some operate nationally and others in defined areas.
Some schemes restrict membership to qualified plumbers who can certify all types of plumbing work in any premises, whilst others offer sector schemes open to plumbing contractors who can certify a limited scope of plumbing work
