New IBG requirement

26 Jun

This month it became a Government requirement for Competent Person Schemes within the replacement glazing industry in England and Wales to ensure that their Registered Businesses provide all replacing windows/doors domestic customers with an Insurance Back Guarantee (IBG), rather than just offer one.

This change applies to all Competent Person Schemes not just FENSA.

To help its Registered Businesses FENSA has compiled a list of Approved IBG Providers (Insurance companies) to fit the new IBG. All insurance companies listed have been the subject of due diligence by FENSA that has involved checking the cover provided in the policies that will be sold to homeowners.

f¤™›;

Due to the new requirements some IBG providers will no longer fulfil the necessary criteria to sell these policies. FENSA is continually working with insurance companies to enable them to become part of FENSA’s Approved IBG Provider list.

If your insurance company is not on FENSA’s Approved IBG Provider list, you will need to make arrangements to switch supplier to one of FENSA’s approved companies as soon as possible.

All FENSA registered businesses have been supplied with the updated list directly.

If FENSA Registered Businesses have any questions about IBGs please telephone 020 7397 7208 or email transitions@fensa.org.uk
