The Benchmark Scheme
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 hotwater 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 chesklist, like this, when commissioning a new heating appliance installation.
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. More info on this can be found here
Benchmark also runs a quality scheme for installers who wish to demonstrate their commitment to raising standards.
