WaterSafe is a free online directory and national accreditation body for competent and qualified plumbers in Scotland, Northern Ireland, England and Wales.
It gives customers looking for a qualified plumber access to a list of WaterSafe recognised professionals in their local postcode area.
The WaterSafe scheme brings together the seven Approved Contractors Schemes under one umbrella brand. The scheme recognises qualified plumbers who are employed by a business, which is a member of an Approved Contractors Scheme.
SNIPEF operates the Approved Contractors Scheme in Scotland and Northern Ireland. Members of each scheme appear on the WaterSafe register of approved plumbers.
It’s a simple way to give peace of mind to your customers and gain water industry endorsement for your business.
To become a member of WaterSafe, a plumbing business or sole trader must join an Approved Contractors Scheme. The business must be located in the geographical area covered by that scheme.
To join SNIPEF’s Approved Contractors Scheme, businesses must meet the criteria for SNIPEF membership and employ at least one qualified individual who holds their Water Byelaws/Regulations qualification for every five employees undertaking water supply installation work.
SNIPEF Licensed Members are eligible to become WaterSafe members at no extra cost. Eligible members must opt to sign up for WaterSafe – you will not be automatically registered.
To find out more about WaterSafe membership or to opt-in, contact the Schemes department on 031 556 06066 (option 4) or email firstname.lastname@example.org
