Plumbing Competence with HETAS

Plumbing Competence

At the end of 2014 HETAS extended the scope of its Competent Person Scheme, enabling registered installers to sign off a range of plumbing and sanitary ware work. Do you have the necessary skills to upgrade your registration? Read more.

The new categories of registration for plumbing include:

  • Installation of shower or bathroom
  • Installation of new taps, sink, washbasin, bidet, bath or other sanitary ware
  • Replacement of shower, bath, sink, washbasin or other sanitary ware
  • Installation of a wholesome cold water supply

Typically the relevant competencies can be demonstrated by:

  • An NVQ Level 3 Diploma in Plumbing & Heating,


  • A Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS) certificate.

If you also have a QCF Level 3 Award in the Installation & Maintenance of Water Harvesting & Re-use Systems, HETAS can cover installation of a supply of non-wholesome water to an appropriate sanitary convenience.

If you have these qualifications, or the equivalent, please call us on 01684 278170 or email or complete the enquiry form below and we’ll give you a call back.  We’ll talk you through how to register or extend your registration with HETAS.
