European Registration Scheme (ERS) Limited has been in business since **** and originally based in Chesterfield. In **** ERS moved to Kings Lynn in Norfolk under new management to continue to provide an impartial personal certification service to the building services industry.
We are accredited by UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) to British Standard 17024 for certification of personnel competence to provide an independent assessment and accreditation service.
ERS is structured to give confidence that we can provide independence, impartiality, technical competence and integrity to the assessment process so that installers, employers and customers can be assured that operators are competent to install and maintain the various categories of equipment.
Our impartiality is further strengthened as we do not own or run any training centres.
We are governed by an independent Governing Board representing the Gas and Oil industries, consumers and manufacturers. The Board ensures that ERS continue to meet the highest standards that we set ourselves. We also run independent gas and oil scheme committees to ensure that our certification process meets the latest requirements of the industry.
We have been expanding our range of approved centres over the years and now have 35 approved centres who offer a wide range of gas, water, oil, electrical and renewable energy courses and assessment throughout the UK and Ireland. (Become an ERS approved centre)
We sit on a number of influential committees and working parties shaping the current and future standards and safety of the building services industry.
