Assure Windows and Doors
Assure is an official Competent Persons Scheme authorised by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG).
Installers of windows and doors can now join Assure, an official Competent Persons Scheme, to self-certify window and door installations, instead of applying for Building Regulations approval for each individual installation.
From June 2014, the self-certification requirements changed for installers wishing to self-certify their work:
Installers and surveyors have to demonstrate their Minimal Technical Competencies (MTC’s). Every customer must be given independent financial support and since July 2013, EU legislation requires that all windows and doors be CE-Marked.
Through the Assure Competent Persons Scheme you can:
- Prove your MTC compliance with branded ID cards and provide your customers with peace of mind.
- Provide your customers with an insurance-backed guarantee – another legal requirement.
- Update your industry knowledge with CPD (Continuous Professional Development) seminars and bulletins.
- Prove the energy performance of your windows and doors with an energy ratings calculators.
- Ensure that Building Regulation compliance certificates are sent directly to your customers – so they will have the paperwork they need if they sell their home.
What does Assure mean for your customers?
A greater level of protection.
High quality windows and doors are a significant investment for homeowners.

- Their windows and doors meet the energy rating that they specified.

- The installation is covered by an insurance-backed guarantee.
- A sample selection of installations are independently audited to ensure the highest standards are being upheld.
