What are we asking you to do?

SNIPEF, as part of Building Services Engineering Skills Ltd, has been contracted to carry out a periodic review of the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for Plumbing and Heating across the UK. This includes the following NOS:

SUMBSE01 Apply health and safety and environmental legislation in the building services engineering sector
SUMBSE02 Establish and maintain relationships in the building services engineering sector
SUMBSE03 Coordinate a work site in the building services engineering sector
SUMBSE04 Perform electrical work on mechanical building services systems
SUMPH04 Install and test domestic plumbing and heating systems
SUMPH05 Service and maintain domestic plumbing and heating systems
SUMPH06 Inspect and pre-commission domestic plumbing and heating systems
SUMPH07 Commission domestic plumbing and heating systems
SUMPH08 Decommission domestic plumbing and heating systems
SUMPH09 Install sheet weathering protection


SNIPEF will work with UK partners to engage with employers, share the consultation documentation, and receive and collate all feedback. This work will conclude with a revised set of NOS.

We are asking you to do two things:
1. Read through the NOS specifications. These would have been sent to you with the survey link or can be accessed HERE.

2. Provide feedback on the NOS through this online survey.
First, tell us a little bit about yourself and your organisation, then tell us whether the current NOS are fit for purpose (FFP) or could be improved. If you think they could be improved, let us know what that improvement should be. There will also be space for you to provide any further comments (or questions) you wish.

3. Your completed consultation will be sent to SNIPEF to collate the results.

Timescales

We can accept feedback until noon on Wednesday 28 November 2018.
