New Gas Membrane Approved Installer Scheme
6 Feb 2023
The new Gas Membrane Approved Installer Scheme is the culmination of three years’ work and is the first of its kind in the UK, delivering supply chain reassurance of high quality products installed by competent, certified professionals to ensure safe outcomes.
Patrick Flood, Juta UK’s Technical Director, believes it is ‘absolutely right’ that competent and trained professionals should install these ‘critical barrier applications’, which play a key role in the built environment and are designed to last for the lifetime of structures into which they are installed.
“This is the first approved installer scheme of its kind in our sector, bringing together manufacturer/suppliers of BBA-certified products with specialist installers with a license and audit system, giving access to insurance-backed guarantees,” he said. “Government is calling on the construction industry to level up and clearly demonstrate competency. While many will spend time talking about such issues, we have decided to act by bringing to market, with the BBA, a scheme that is transparent and fully demonstrates product and installation competencies in the supply chain.”
The scheme, which is open to all installers of BBA-certified gas membrane products, has been designed to benchmark quality levels of installation workmanship, providing peace-of-mind to industry of the high standard of product quality and certified installation methods. Professionals applying for the BBA Gas Membrane Approved Installer Scheme commit to rigorous independent auditing and inspection.
More information on the scheme is available from the BBA and Juta UK.
