Blue Flame Certification

Blue Flame Certification


Blue Flame Certification (BFC) is a UKAS-accredited certification body offering certification services for businesses in the gas, oil, electrical, solid fuel and building services sectors. Works completed in your home need to be compliant with the Building Regulations and some works need approval by the local Building Control Department, this approval can be completed by a registered member of a competent-person scheme such as BFC.

Self-certification by competent-person schemes have been approved by the Department of Communities and local government. To be registered with one of the recognised schemes, such as the BFC, a tradesperson must be able to meet the minimum academic competence requirements and be able to demonstrate they hold the practical skills.

Confirming whether your tradesperson is approved and registered is all part of the due-diligence, customers should take before agreeing on works to be completed, you can check your trade’s membership to the BFC by using the following link:
