Double Glazing & Conservatory Ombudsman Scheme members can once again register their IBGs with Fensa after its insurance broker, UWC was reappointed as an approved provider by Fensa.
DGCOS chief executive Faisal Hussain explained: “This in turn means that DGCOS members can now nominate Fensa as their Competent Person’s Scheme through us, to support compliance with building regulations for the work they carry out. Each time a job is registered and completed with DGCOS, an IBG is issued and now we can notify Fensa on the member’s behalf so there is no need for duplication, saving administration time and around £1.80 per registration.
“The aim of both organisations is to ensure quality in windows and doors. Fensa is a government-authorised scheme that monitors building regulation compliance for replacement windows and doors. DGCOS supports a network of installers, working in the retail sector, who have been accredited by our strict accreditation process for the product or products they sell. The collaboration is a positive for both organisations.”
Tom Butler, Head of Sales & Marketing at the GGF added: “As the largest community in the glazing industry, it’s important that FENSA Approved Installers have a wide range of IBG providers available to them. We look forward to working with them”.
