Making work notifications easier for the consumer and the environment!

To make our work notification self-certification system more efficient, we introduced an option for certificates to be emailed to your customers within 24 hours of you completing your notification. It’s already proving popular and, currently, 50% of certificates are now being emailed, with the homeowner receiving an electronic copy which they can print, or store on their computer.

What heating engineers need to know about important new changes to building regulations

Our aim is to have all certificates emailed to consumers in the future, cutting down on the amount of paper used, and enabling OFTEC to take a significant step towards being more environmentally friendly. We would encourage all installers to do their bit for the environment, and help their consumers, by filling out the homeowner’s phone number and email address, to make use of this new electronic feature.

Unfortunately, consumer certificates cannot be emailed to you as Building Regulations require that they are sent direct to the homeowner/ occupier, but you can obtain a copy free of charge via your OFTEC portal account, once the local authority have been notified.

If, in the future, the homeowner needs a copy, then you can retrieve this from your account on the OFTEC website portal, or they can do it themselves by using the certificate find service in the consumer area of our website
