FENSA is a government made Competent Person Scheme for the replacement of windows, doors, roof lanterns and roof lights in England and Wales that ensures windows and doors supplied and fitted comply with the relevant Building Regulations in order to meet the quality standards that are expected.
FENSA was established as a Competent Person Scheme (CPS) in April 2002 as a response to the Building Regulations for double glazing companies in England and Wales. As the market leader, FENSA is the largest and longest established Competent Person Scheme within the replacement window and door industry.
The role of FENSA is to enable companies to self-certify compliance under the Building Regulations without the need for a separate assessment from Building Control.
