On 1st August 2015 HIES was officially recognised as an approved CTSI Consumer Code, the UK’s second official Code of Practice for the renewable energy sector.

In May this year HIES was subject to an onsite audit by a Chartered Trading Standards Practitioner from CTSI. A copy of the report can be downloaded from the CTSI website. 

Throughout the report HIES has been praised for the way it conducts itself and highlights several areas of best practice. It states:
“HIES is a dynamic organisation that has made significant improvements to its systems within the last 12 months that have measurably improved consumer protection”.
