The Independent Airtightness Testing Scheme (iATS) is a scheme created for companies (including sole traders and partnerships) that carry out air tightness testing activities and to provide reassurance to clients that the work is carried out to a high degree of quality and integrity.
iATS has been developed arising from the withdrawal of BINDT as Scheme Manager of the current competent person scheme for air tightness testing.
The scheme is authorised to operate as a Competent Persons Scheme (CPS) for air tightness testing, effective from 18 April 2015. Details on how to join the scheme can be found here.
This site will be of use to anyone wishing to become a member of the scheme and to any party with an interest in the result of an air tightness test, such as Build Control Officers, accreditation bodies or house builders.
If you would like more information about the scheme, including details on how to join, please contact us using the email address firstname.lastname@example.org
