Registered professionals and the public

Published:  17 September, 2010

HORNCHURCH: The CIPHE (Chartered Institute for Plumbing and Heating Engineering) has launched a short survey to find out how aware people in the UK are of the need for Registered Professionals.


Stories in the news are not uncommon about cowboy gas installers or dodgy plumbers who have endangered lives, causing carbon monoxide poisoning, causing boilers to fail and all kinds of scalding tragedies. This only highlights the need for fully qualified professionals such as those on the CIPHE's Register.



CIPHE members can assist the Institute by posting a link to the survey from their websites and twitter or facebook accounts.
