PAS 2035 is a specification or framework for the design, installation and operation of energy storage systems or energy retrofit measures to existing buildings in the UK. The aim of the specification is to provide a framework for the safe and reliable implementation of energy-efficient improvements, following the recommendations of the 2015 Each Home Counts (ECH) Review. This review outlined 27 recommendations, which included the creation of an industry-wide Code of Practice, resulting in PAS 2035.

What is the difference between PAS 2030 and PAS 2035?

The UK’s PAS 2035 is an overarching framework for preparing plans to retrofit projects at home. It works in tandem with 2030, which provides the requirements that installations must meet if they want their design certified under this standard – but it isn’t just about meeting those standards; designers also need some advice on how best to achieve them.

Is PAS 2035 mandatory?

From 30th June 2021, companies installing Energy Efficiency Measures (EEMs) must comply with PAS 2035 and PAS 2030. An exemption until end of October 2021 was made for firms participating in Green Homes Grant or Local Authority Delivery Phase 1 schemes.

TrustMark & PAS 2035

TrustMark has set out to create a new quality mark that is supported by an industry code of conduct, consumer charter and framework for technical standards.

What are the roles within PAS 2035?

The PAS 2035 framework provides a number of roles that can be filled by either professionals or contractors. These include the role(s) as Retrofit Advisor, Retrofit Assessor, Retrofit Coordinator, Retrofit Designer and Retrofit Evaluator. It is helpful if these individuals have been trained according to its standards in order for them not only meet but exceed expectations when providing services through this process.

What is the PAS 2030 Certification Process

Your business will need to demonstrate that you use a PAS-compliant Quality Management System (QMS) to ensure your installation processes are in line with best practices and standards. To achieve this, we recommend hiring an installer who has relevant qualifications for the task at hand. To become PAS 2030 certified, you must have an up-to-date Health and Safety certification. For certification purposes only one member from each team needs to hold an NVQ or other designated Retrofit Installation Certifications.
