The Fenestration Self-Assessment Scheme was set up to help compliance with strict new Building Regulations for domestic properties and Document L in particular, effective from April 2002. The purpose is to ensure higher standards of work and product specification for double glazed windows doors and conservatories.
Replacement Double Glazed Windows & Doors – Self-Certification
All installers of replacement double glazed windows or doors must comply with improved thermal performance standards. As there are over 1 million installations of replacement double glazing every year, putting all of these through the Building Regulations applications process would flood the system. The FENSA scheme allows double glazing installers meeting certain criteria to self-certify that their double glazing installations comply with the Building Regulations. FENSA will:-
- Inspect samples of double glazing work by the installer to ensure that standards are maintained.
- Inform local authorities of completed double glazing installations by registered double glazing installation companies.
- Issue certificates to householders confirming compliance.
Replacement Double Glazed Windows – Non-Registered
Double glazing work done as a DIY project or by a non-registered double glazing installer will need full local authority approval under the Building Regulations.
