Following valuable feedback from the users of APHC's one-stop notification site, the next generation system has now been launched giving users the ability to add notifications for new-build properties that have no recognised address.
The system has been updated to allow users to manually input the address of the property where the works have been carried out, as well as the Local Authority which the property falls into. Users of APHC's online notifications system can now notify all their works covering any fuel type and mechanical system - on new-build and existing properties through the APHC site.There are also additional facilities available, including being able to review previous notifications and reconcile them, and being able to issue duplicate certificates.
These new additions are aimed at helping to reduce the administrative burden for companies and installers while allowing them to meet their legal requirements and further distance themselves from the rogue element of the industry.
Charlotte Murray, APHC's Marketing Manager, commented:"APHC is rightly proud of its notification system, with one organisation now putting over 5,000 notifications through in this financial year alone, saving them over £1,400. Savings like these are critical during these challenging times, as is the ability of members to differentiate themselves from those companies and installers who do not notify.
APHC will continue to invest in the system, engaging with users and listening to what they would like to see, ensuring that we continue to reduce any complexities."APHC's scheme remains the most comprehensive Competent Persons Scheme on the market and its notification costs are highly competitive, especially with recent cost consolidations.
The Association continues to offer current members of any other government-recognised Competent Persons Scheme the opportunity to join the APHC scheme with immediate effect at the special rate of £250 a year.
