Competent Persons Scheme:

Replacement Windows and Doorsets in Dwellings

The Building Regulations in England and Wales contain a requirement for replacement windows and doors to meet a number of different criteria. However, demonstrating compliance and providing notification to Local Authority Building Control (LABC) for each installation can be both costly and time consuming.

Becoming a member of the BM TRADA Certification Competent Persons Scheme for Replacement Windows and Doorsets in Dwellings enables you to demonstrate compliance with the Building Regulations in a simple and cost effective way.

  • Checks that an installer or organisation is able to comply with the Building Regulations

  • Provides peace of mind that the organisation or installer is suitably qualified and that their work is checked by an independent body
  • Raises the on-going standard of replacement window and doorset installations
