PAS 2030 (Publicly Available Specification) is published by the British Standards Institute (BSi) and is aimed at installers of Energy Efficiency Measures (EEM) for ECO projects – this could be anything from installing draught-proofing to doors, windows and access hatches, to internal and external wall and loft insulation systems.
PAS 2030 certification sets out the minimum technical competencies you need to have to be able to install EEM for ECO customers. It also explains the requirements for companies or organisations who want to become installers of ECO measures.
Those renewable energy installation companies who currently operate a Microgeneration Certification Scheme Quality Management System (MCS) will be very familiar with QMS and therefore easily extend their scope to encompass the PAS2030 standards.
In 2016, PPL Training teamed up with Trade Engine to offer the Most Comprehensive PAS 2030 Training and Certification Service in the UK and have trained over 700 Installers in this area already.

PAS2030 certification is designed to improve the energy efficiency of existing buildings and sets the specification for the installation process, process management and service provision. PAS2030 is designed for installing, managing and providing energy efficiency measures (EEM) in existing buildings. It recommends best practice for managing the installation process and providing services to the customer before, during and after. It also provides measure-specific requirements (including the necessary qualifications) for each individual type of measure.
In order to become a Green Deal Installer you need to follow the following 3 EASY Steps....
Meet the Quality Assurance Standard called PAS2030 - This stands for Publicy Available Specification 2030. In order to do this any company looking at installing Green Deal Measures will have to prove they can meet this standard.
PPL Training offer the most comprehensive PAS2030 Quality Assurance Training Course in conjunction with Trade Engine which includes a full 12 months 1-2-1 support after.
After training on a PAS2030 Quality Assurance training course, you will then need to register with a Green Deal accredited certification body such as STROMA, or BRE, or NICEIC.
As long as you have passed the proper assessment criteria set out by the associated body, either the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) or by the British Standards Institution, you will be eligible to carry out Green Deal installations.
Your certification body will license you to use the Green Deal Quality Mark. If you are Gas Safe Registered or in the MCS scheme, you should contact these schemes to find out what the process is for you.
