What qualifications should plumbers have?

Plumbers employed by a WaterSafe approved plumbing business need to have successfully completed at least an NVQ Level 2 in a plumbing related discipline as a minimum, and hold a water industry-recognised Water Fittings Regulations qualification to ensure they are competent and have the relevant knowledge. In addition, if a plumbing individual does gas work then they are legally obliged to be on the GasSafe Register.
