The Accredited Installer Scheme (AIS) provides a benchmark for best practice and helps installers improve standards and enhance their reputation. It also provides an added assurance for their clients.
But in our view the biggest advantage of the AIS is the ongoing relationship between the FIA and the installer as the scheme provides:
- Continued support in raising standards as practices evolve
- Ongoing professional development and education
- Free access to our arbitratio service to help resolve any disputes

About the Scheme
Why we Introduced the Accredited Installers Scheme (AIS)
We've all witnessed the recent commoditisation of cabling installation, and along with it, the growing need to establish best practice. Increasingly, it's become enveloped in mechanical and electrical contracts that don't reflect the technical challenges and specialist knowledge involved.
Installers found themselves in need of a framework to support designing, planning and management as well as quality assurance to maximise profits. Meanwhile, their clients need operational and maintainable installations, completed on schedule by recognised and qualified contractors.
So we created a set of best practice principles that universally meet customer needs.
ALL HUMAN ERRORS ARE IMPATIENCE, A BREAKING OFF OF METHODICAL PROCEDURE"
The Principle of Risk Reduction
THE UNIVERSAL INDICATOR OF BEST PRACTICE
The FIA determined that risk reduction is the fundamental driver of an installation that best meets a customer's multi-lateral needs.
Installers who conscientiously minimise risk to themselves, also minimise the risk to their customers and vice versa. This requires methodical, dilligent processes that naturally reduce the probability of complaints and litigation.
And the benefits of adopting practices aimed at reducing risk are even more far-reaching...
