Government Endorsed Standards
TrustMark is a quality mark which operates a framework under which 30 plus scheme operators work in the RMI (repair, maintenance and improvement) sector, including trade
associations, local government trading standards teams, and independent scheme operators. These schemes are approved to carry the TrustMark logo and recruit reputable and trustworthy tradesmen. This
enables the TrustMark scheme operators to promote improved RMI sector standards, and tackle related issues such as better enforcement. All of these scheme operators are audited annually by TrustMark,
to ensure processes, standards and complaint procedures are being maintained.
If a firm displays our TrustMark logo you know that we have approved and inspected the firm through one of our scheme operators and found that the firm meets the required Government endorsed criteria.

Requirements for Electrical Installations BS 7671: 2008
What are the qualifications about?
This Certificate ensures you are up-to-date with the latest industry regulation on wiring and the safe use and operation of electrical equipment and systems.
It covers the 17th edition of the IEE Wiring Regulations, which came into force in June 2008. These regulations are recognised by the British Standards Institute as a British Standard (BS7671).
Who are they for?
If you're a practising electrician, you must comply with the regulations for electrical work - this Certificate helps you do that.
If you were certified for the previous edition of the IEE wiring regulations (which came into force in June 2001), you can take a one-day refresher course. If you are a newly qualified electrician or have not achieved a qualification against the last amendment or the 16th edition, you'll need to do the full course.
