    Is fensa registered to the person or the company?

    Window Specialists

    Is FENSA registered to the company or the person? I have recently found that my windows need replacing and I have a friend who can change windows, but they are not FENSA registered themselves, but the company that employs them is. If they change my windows, is that covered if the one of the other company staff checks the work for them?

    "Hello, An organisation or an individual can be registered with FENSA. In this case, the company would be able to issue you a certificate – if your friend can have the company provide an authentic certificate and for the work to be registered with FENSA. Without a certificate or being done through the company, it won’t be legitimate, as he is not certified as an individual with FENSA.
    It is your responsibility as homeowner to make sure your windows meet these FENSA requirements and ensure that the work done is completed by someone who can have it certified and registered with FENSA. Unless, they get registered with FENSA, he won’t be able to do it himself and the company would need to authenticate the work – as if it was a normal job for the company."

    "No. You and your friend are trying to save money by bypassing the certified company. What you mean is: Can the company pay all the Fensa registration and ongoing certification bills whilst you, your friend and a company staff member attempt to get all their hard work and expensive passing of exams for no charge. The company can register work installed and guaranteed by them, but not a private arrangement outside of the company not organised by the company. You can pay local building control to certify your friends work but that would defeat the initial object of shaving costs......"

    "Fensa is registered to a company and a skilled fitter will have his own qualification"

    "No if your friend did fit them he and you would need to get them signed off by the local council who would provide a certificate."

    "Either, can be an individual or a company. He has to be Fensa registered as an individual, if he is working outside the company to issue the certificate. ... They will be able to issue the certificate through their company."
