CHANGES TO THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE SUB-CONTRACTING WITHIN THE GREEN HOME GRANT VOUCHER SCHEME

|In the last 24 hours, we have noted the delivery of misinformation and incorrect interpretations of the updated requirements for sub-contracting under the Green Home Grant Voucher Scheme.
For the purposes of clarity, and correction, the requirement for any business to take part in the Green Home Grant Voucher Scheme remains the same and has not been changed. A business must be registered with TrustMark and have MCS, PAS or both to undertake the work required to fulfil a Green Homes Grant voucher.
The change to the T&C’s of the scheme for sub-contractors allows the primary TrustMark Registered Business to undertake the delivery of the work for the voucher and allows for this primary business to now use sub-contracting businesses to complete the work on their behalf without the sub-contracting business being required to be TrustMark Registered, MCS registered or hold the required PAS.
The primary TrustMark Registered Business will be required to accept full liability for the work that has been completed, undertake lodgement of the work onto the TrustMark Data Warehouse and ensure that they have provided suitable protection to the consumer for the work that has been completed.
The change to the sub-contractor areas is recognising that numbers of larger businesses use many small sub-contractors for the labour and delivery but retain the control and liability chain, this purely now allows these small businesses to deliver for the main contractor in a recognised manner.
