CompetentRoofer is the Competent Person Scheme dedicated to compliant roof refurbishment.
CompetentRoofer is an independent company run by the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC) under licence from the Department for Communities and Local Government.
We are also a UKAS accredited Certification Body, which means that our members can apply to be audited and inspected against the requirements of PAS 2030 and the Green Deal Code of Practice and if successful, can be registered as Green Deal approved Installers to undertake Green Deal and Energy Company Obligation (ECO) work. You can read more about this on our Green Deal page.
CompetentRoofer is open for any roofing contractor to apply to join, they do not need to be members of NFRC.
How it works
CompetentRoofer member companies are able to self certify that their roof refurbishment work is compliant with the Building Regulations.
They do this by registering works via our website prior to starting the job, then marking it as complete once they've finished the roof. We send a Building Regulations Compliance Certificate to the building owner and we notify the Building Control department of the relevant Local Authority that the work has been completed.
Insurance-backed insolvency guarantees are included in the cost of notification for all works up to £50k, and are available for larger works upon request.
To build trust in the roof refurbishment industry.
