HETAS is the official body recognised by government to Approve solid fuel domestic heating appliances, fuels and services. Its work in Approving products covers boilers, cookers, open fires and stoves and room-heaters. It also lists in its Official 2007 Guide, factory made chimneys and carbon monoxide detectors and alarms suitable for use with solid fuel.
HETAS collaborates with the National Association of Chimney Sweeps (NACS) in supervising a solid fuel orientated course for chimney sweeps which results in successful candidates being "HETAS Approved".
In association with the Solid Fuel Association (SFA), HETAS operates a registration scheme for heating engineers with special skills in the installation and maintenance of solid fuel heating systems.
HETAS represents the industry with government in matters such as Building Regulations and in the setting of standards both in the UK and Europe where its staff manage and chair committees drafting new British and European Standards. Its "three tick" Logo is the Approval mark to be looked for in solid fuel domestic heating products and services.
