The accreditation process is what all applicant installers must pass before being offered membership.
All applicant installers must complete and successfully pass a five point 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, and guarantee. DGCOS also request a copy of the applicant's complaints procedure and health and safety policy. If an applicant does not have the relevant documents, approved templates are available to adopt. All applicants must also carry a minimum of £2m 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.
