About Cradley Stoves

Cradley Stoves is a family run business specialising in the quality installation and maintenance of Wood burning & Multi-fuel stoves. We are based in Cradley, Near Malvern, Worcestershire and install in the surrounding areas of the Three Counties - Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire. However, we can travel further afield - call for an estimate.

Having had our family run building business for the last 15 years, Cradley Stoves was then set up due to local demand for stoves to be installed. After a short while we gained our HETAS (Heating Equipment Testing and Approval Scheme) Registration, which enabled us to sign the works off ourselves through the Competent Persons Scheme.

What is the Competent Persons Scheme?

Competent person schemes (CPS) were introduced by the Government to allow individuals and enterprises to self-certify that their work complies with the Building Regulations as an alternative to submitting a building notice or using an approved inspector. 

The principles of self-certification are based on giving people who are competent in their field the ability to self-certify that their work complies with Building Regulations without the need to submit a building notice and thus incurring local authority inspections or fees.

HETAS is the ONLY competent persons registration scheme specialising in the installation of solid fuel, wood and biomass installations.

Companies applying for membership of the HETAS Ltd Registration Scheme have to meet a number of conditions before acceptance.

The main conditions are:

  • They employ HETAS Ltd trained engineers
  • That their workmanship (on inspection) is of a good standard
  • They have the required level of Public Liability Insurance
  • They respond to customers concerns in a positive way
  • Companies accepted into membership of the Registration Scheme will not need to seek building control approval before commencing work. This will save you both time and money.
