Flexi-Orb Renewables Scheme

Certification Requirements & Process

In addition to a successful assessment being completed, installers wishing to become Flexi-Orb Certified will need to provide evidence of their Consumer Code membership and registration with an appropriate Insurance Backed Guarantee (IBG) Provider. 

The below steps detail the process for becoming a Flexi-Orb Certified Installer.

Steps to Becoming Certified

Consumer Code of Conduct

To demonstrate your commitment to consumer care and protection, it is a mandatory requirement of the Flexi-Orb Scheme that you are also a member of one of the industry Trading Standards Institute approved Consumer Codes.

There are currently two codes – the Renewable Energy Code of Conduct (RECC) and the Home Insulation and Energy Systems Contractors’ Scheme (HIES). Their prices and support strategies are different, and you should consider the benefits of each before deciding which suits your own business needs most closely.

If the Applicant is not already a member of one of these Codes, it is possible to make applications to one of them and to the Flexi-Orb Scheme in parallel, although you will only be given an ‘approval in principle’ until you are certified.



The Application Process

Demonstration of Competency

The Applicant will be asked to demonstrate how they engage the services of skilled, competent, and experienced individuals to fulfil each activity required to meet and maintain the requirements of the Scheme. This includes confirmation of the competence of those individuals involved in the supply, design, installation, set to work and commissioning of renewable energy systems for which the Applicant is seeking certification. These competency requirements are detailed within the Scheme.

The Quality Management System

Apart from the technical assessment, the Certification Body will also assess the Applicant’s operation of a Quality Management System (QMS). The assessing Certification Body will ensure that the Applicant meets the requirements of the QMS system, which is detailed in the Scheme, by assessing the documented processes and procedures.

Applicants may already have a QMS system, but the Flexi-Orb portal has available an intuitive QMS system which is available to Applicants. However, the assessment is not just to ascertain whether a system is in place, but also whether it is being used effectively to maintain and develop the company’s operations.
