Certass Limited is a UKAS approved certification body for the operation of a Competent Person Scheme under a Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) license and a Green Deal Certification Body under licence from the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC).
Membership of the Certass Competent Person Scheme enables contractors to self-certify that their installations adhere to current Building Regulations as an alternative to submitting a building notice to the local authority or using an approved inspector.
Membership of the Certass Green Deal certification scheme enables contractors to self-certify installations to the requirements of PAS2030, which is the standard for work under Green Deal.
Membership of the Certass TrustMark Scheme demonstrates a company's dedication to consumer protection.

|All Certass Limited UKAS accredited Certification Body activities are funded solely by certified members fees. Scheme charges are listed in scheme application packs.|
Membership of the Certass certification scheme is not automatic. Member companies are assessed inline with the standards laid down in EN45011 and specific license requirements of DCLG and/or DECC. This means that Certass financially and technically assesses its members to ensure they meet required standards.
In addition to initially assessing every member each year, Certass will inspect a sample of work submitted by the member for scheme compliance.
Where appropriate, Certass notifies the local authority and issues a Building Regulation Compliance Certificate to the homeowner.
Certass also manages a product certification scheme called Thermal Rating Register, which ensures the thermal compliance of replacement windows and doors.
Certass and the Thermal Rating Register pride themselves on delivering a fair, friendly and cost effective service to both the industry and homeowners.
