Irish Water Launch Experience Based Accreditation Scheme< back to news

Irish Water calls on contractors to apply for new Experience Based Accreditation

Irish Water has launched a new Experience Based Accreditation Scheme for contractors across Ireland, 18 months ahead of plan. The scheme facilitates experienced contractors in becoming accredited to deliver new water services infrastructure in public roads for housing developers.

The new scheme is welcomed by the Construction Industry Federation (CIF), the Irish Homebuilders Association (IHBA) and Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU). The scheme recognises contractors’ adherence to Irish Waters Standard Details, Codes of Practice and Quality Assurance procedures. These best practice procedures and standards have been developed by Irish Water to prevent a reoccurrence of legacy issues that exist across the country. The launch of this accreditation scheme will now provide greater flexibility for developers in the delivery of water services.
