NFRC - Roofing Competent Person Scheme


Are you Repairing or Refurbishing Your Roof?

Building Regulations require you to notify your Local Authority of the work if more than 50 per cent of your roof is being replaced.

To avoid the cost and inconvenience of an inspection from your local building control department, use a roofing contractor that is registered on the NFRC Competent Person Scheme. As a result of our strict vetting process, Registered Contractors can self-certify that their work meets Building Regulations and you will receive a Building Regulations Compliance Certificate on completion.
