Octane Holding Group Ltd is now an OFTEC registered business. Gaining registered status with the trade association means it can now provide fuel management services to the UK domestic market.
Bradford, West Yorkshire -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/13/2015 -- Octane Holding Group Ltd, a provider of oil, fuel and environmental services and products to customers across the UK, has gained its OFTEC registered business status.
After completing the stringent process to be recognised as OFTEC registered, it is now legally able to install and service oil and fuel tanks in the UK domestic market.
OFTEC (the Oil Firing Technical Association) is a trade association that has set industry standards since its formation in 1991. It is recognised by manufacturers, governments, consumers and distributors, and registered status demonstrates that businesses are committed to the standards of excellence established by the association.
Even though OFTEC registration is not a legal requirement for serving the commercial sector, it demonstrates that the business is committed to maintaining high standards. Customers choosing installation and maintenance services for fuel tanks and bunded oil tanks are therefore given extra reassurance when they choose an OFTEC registered business.
To become registered under OFTEC's scheme, Octane had to meet strict requirements. These included having public liability insurance of £2 million or more, providing a workmanship warranty for its installation work, having a suitable Health and Safety policy, having a suitable complaints procedure in place, keeping records of complaints and certain test equipment and more.
Following its new registered status, Octane can now self-certify installation work through OFTEC. There is no need for it to apply for building notice and this saves time and expense submitting plans.
The Director of Octane Holding Group Ltd, Richard Sykes, said: "Gaining the OFTEC registered business status is a big tick in the box for Octane and allows the UK domestic energy market to benefit from our many years experience in the business sector."
He continued: "Our commercial clients will also benefit from the reassurance that Octane is fully committed to providing the highest level of service and support for all of our customers due to the high standards required to attain OFTEC registration."
Octane can now display the OFTEC logo to demonstrate its membership of the association and it can present its OFTEC certificate upon request. It is also listed in the OFTEC online technicians database.
Octane Holding Group Ltd provides fuel management, oil and environmental services for both domestic and commercial customers across the UK.
