QualiCert stands for “Common quality certification and accreditation for installers of small-scale renewable energy systems” and started in July 2009 and finished in December 2011.
The QualiCert project has contributed to the development of a European set of common “key success criteria” for certification or equivalent qualification schemes for installers of building-integrated biomass stoves and boilers, shallow geothermal energy systems, heat pumps, photovoltaics and solar thermal systems so that they can be mutually recognisable.
This approach is in line with the requirement of Art. 14 of the European RES Directive asking Member States to provide such schemes by 31st December 2012. A first core of 5 countries is tackled by the project, which are Austria, France, Greece, Italy and Poland, the other EU Member States being involved through a wide dissemination activity.
