DGCOS    Certass

DGCOS and certification specialists Certass have agreed a partnership deal, commencing 1st August 2018. The agreement marks the start of a close collaboration between the two groups, benefitting installers that are members of both and the industry as a whole.

Certain benefits from each scheme will now be available to members of both. For example, Certass members will be able to use DGCOS to cover their mandatory alternative dispute resolution (ADR) requirement, while the joining fee for new Certass members will be covered under the agreement between the two organisations.

Jon Vanstone, Chair of the Certass Trade Association comments on the partnership: “There’s a clear synergy between our organisation and DGCOS; both are focussed on promoting our industry and its professionalism to consumers, to the benefit of everyone. Certass lead the field in certification and installer support, while DGCOS provides outstanding consumer advice and protection. By getting together and collaborating we can support and champion the installers that are out there every day offering great products and service to homeowners.”

Tony Pickup, founder of DGCOS, comments: "We’re known for our consumer protection credentials, but an important part of what we do is promoting the quality and best practice of our members to consumers. I was delighted to see the launch of the Certass Trade Association, providing wide-ranging and comprehensive support to its members. It mirrors what we do but from a different angle, so the partnership between us makes sense – benefitting the industry as a whole by working and growing together. Long may it continue!"

If you would like to know more about the partnership or enquire about joining DGCOS please contact Paul Wingfield on 0345 053 8975.
