WaterSafe approved businesses and installers must commit to the terms and conditions, including ensuring only approved Point of Use Installers issue a certificate of compliance in accordance with the terms and conditions.

Step Two: Sign up to one of the four Approved Contractor Schemes which make up WaterSafe and allow Approved Point of Use Installers:

WaterSafe has four Approved Contractor Schemes which offer a Point Of Use Installer sector and the route to becoming approved by WaterSafe is through one of these schemes. These are: Anglian Water’s APlus, Severn Trent’s WaterMark, the Water Industry Approved Plumbing Scheme (WIAPS) and the Scotland and Northern Ireland Plumbing Employers’ Federation (SNIPEF).

Find out which scheme best suits you and fill in your application form – don’t forget to select the option to join WaterSafe when you fill this in.

If you’re already a member of the one of these schemes, just ask them how to get signed up to WaterSafe. This may be done automatically on renewal.
