NFRC Competent Person Scheme—Compliance Simplified

NFRC Competent Person Scheme (CPS) is the only one of its kind in the roofing industry.

Whether you are a roofing contractor, a homeowner, or a business owner that is looking to have roofing work done that required Building Control sign-off, then look no further than NFRC CPS.

NFRC CPS allows roofing contractors to self-certify that their work meets the requirements of Approved Document L1B of the Building Regulations without having to go through the bureaucratic and costly process of getting Building Control sign-off.

For roofing contractors, the NFRC Competent Person Scheme saves you time and money, as well as assuring your clients that you can perform the work to the standards required. Contractors also have access to our in-house technical team. Go to our contractors page to find out more information and how to join.

For homeownersย and commercial clients, by using an NFRC CPS contractor, you could save hundreds of pounds on an inspection from Building Control, as well as the cost of a Building Control Compliance Certificate (BRCC).

Homeowners will also have the assurance of a ten-year Insurance Backed Guarantee (IBG) which all NFRC CPS contractors have to have in place for domestic projects.

Go to our homeowners and commercial pages to find out more information and how to find an NFRC CPS contractor.
