WaterSafe Accreditation Scheme

WaterSafe is the nationally branded plumbing assurance scheme, promoting compliance with Water Fittings Regulations and Scottish Water Bylaws to contribute to the safety of drinking water supplies and the protection of consumers. It provides recognition for competent plumbers and assurance of competence and compliance to customers seeking water supply plumbing work.

WaterSafe is an ‘umbrella’ body and national brand for current Approved Contractor Person (ACP) schemes including: Association of Plumbing and Heating Contractors (APHC) Ltd., Water Industry Approved Plumbers’ Scheme (WIAPS), Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering (CIPHE), Scottish and Northern Ireland Plumbing Employers’ Federation (SNIPEF), Anglian Water’s A Plus and Severn Trent’s WaterMark schemes.

What are the benefits?

Build Trust: Your customers will be reassured they are dealing with a professional and competent plumber and you will receive recognition of your professional status under a national trusted brand.

Win more business: Members of the scheme will be listed on the WaterSafe website which is a national search facility providing the opportunity to reach more customers.  Members will also be able to display WaterSafe branding on their vehicles and stationery to gain extra credibility and carry the stamp of approval.
