What is FENSA? – FENSA stands for Fenestration Self Assessment Scheme. It is an administration and inspection scheme, the outcome of discussions between the Government, the Glass and Glazing Federation and Industry.
FENSA registered companies are permitted to self certify their own work. However random inspections are carried out during and after installation. Inspectors are checking for : Escape – In case of Fire Use of Safety Toughened Glass Ventilation Structure, and Access and facilities for disabled people. Any installation done by a firm which is not registered to self-certify, or done as a DIY project by a householder, will need full local authority approval under the Building Regulations.
