The Benchmark member scheme is a nationally recognised scheme that places the responsibilities on both manufacturers and installers to ensure best practice in installation, commissioning and servicing of domestic heating and hot water products in line with Building Regulations in England and Wales.
It is managed and promoted by the Heating and Hotwater Industry Council (HHIC).
Benchmark requires that installers complete a Benchmark checklist, when commissioning a new heating appliance installation.
Every installer should ensure the Benchmark Commissioning Checklist is complete after every installation to validate a manufacturer’s warranty.
Failure to install and commission according to the manufacturer’s instructions and complete the Benchmark Commissioning Checklist will invalidate the warranty for gas boiler installations.
Benchmark runs a quality scheme for installers who wish to demonstrate their commitment to raising standards.
Premier Plumbing, Heating & Drains Limited is a member of the Benchmark scheme.
