WIAPS is funded by most of the Water Suppliers to administer an approved plumbers scheme for them. In order to become a WIAPS member, a plumber has to show he has been suitably trained as a plumber, that he has adequate knowledge of the Regulations by passing an assessment and that he has sufficient public liability insurance cover.
The Government is campaigning against ‘cowboy building’ in a number of ways. One way is to include in the new Regulations some useful concessions for an ‘Approved Contractor (Plumber)’, who will be competent in complying with the Regulations.
The Approved Plumber has been given a very useful concession in that he/she may start work without notification or prior consent on certain types of work, provided he/she issues the customer (and for some types of work, the Water Supplier) with a certificate of compliance for the work when it is completed. This can save up to ten days of waiting for the Water Supplier’s consent and reduces the paperwork of notification.
This means the customer(YOU) will be given a certificate of compliance to show that the work as been done by a competent person and complies with the water regulations.
