OFTEC - What does it do?


OFTEC (The Oil Firing Technical Association for the Petroleum Industry) was launched in April 1991 to construct a framework within which oil firing in the United Kingdom and Republic Of Ireland could operate with a greater degree of technical expertise and efficiency. One of its first priorities was to set up a system of training and registration for Technicians engaged in commissioning, servicing, installation and plant operation with oil firing equipment. 

OFTEC Registered Technicians:

• Are individually trained at an OFTEC Approved Training Centre, and their skills independently assessed before they can apply for OFTEC Registration

• Have their work inspected from time to time by an OFTEC Inspector

• Are re-assessed every five years to maintain their Registration

• Carry an identity card confirming the type of oil heating work for which they are registered

• Have to hold appropriate insurance to work in your home

• Are able (in England and Wales) to self-certify work for which they are Registered. This saves you time and money, as non-Registered technicians must, by law, notify Local Authority Building Control, or submit plans when installing oil-fired appliances
