The accreditation process is what all applicant installers must pass before being offered membership.
All applicant installers must complete and successfully pass an intensive credit and background history check, and provide DGCOS administrators with a copy of their customer facing documents. These documents include their customer contract, terms and conditions (including cancellation rights), and guarantee. DGCOS also request a copy of the applicant's latest financial information, public and employers liability insurances which must be a minimum of £2m for public liability insurance and £10m employer's liability insurance.
During the accreditation process the applicant's paperwork and processes will be assessed, and if they meet the stringent criteria set by the DGCOS membership committee they may be offered membership.
