Become A Plumber?
Using a SNIPEF Licensed Plumber gives you peace of mind that you are choosing a plumbing business which uses properly trained and qualified operatives. All members also hold relevant insurance and are subject to third party inspection.
The SNIJIB (Scottish & Northern Ireland Joint Industry Board for the Plumbing industry) regulates and controls employment, the level of skill and proficiency, health and safety competence, wages and welfare benefits in the plumbing industry.
