The TM44 order book for ACI Reports is now at its highest levels ever.

Aug 15
, 2015 By JE

Having seen month on month growth throughout 2015. This increase in TM44 Inspections is in line with the long term strategy at ACI of providing customers with high quality TM44 Reporting, supplemented with EPC Certification. 2014 was the first year that TM44 Renewals started to come through our door. Loyal Clients have now been with us for 6 years and we are now providing those Clients with Renewal TM44 Assessments. Interestingly, many new Clients are approaching ACI Reports as their historic provider has gone out of business, leaving them exposed to Trading Standards fines and missing reports. The consequences of not having lodged TM44 Reports when it was not mandatory in 2010 and 2011 are that, for many customers, the reports cannot be found.

ACI Reports have uncovered a “black hole” in the Professional Indemnity insurance being offered my many self-employed Assessors.

November 25th, 2011 | By Chris

ACI Reports have uncovered a “black hole” in the Professional Indemnity insurance being offered my many self-employed Assessors and small Organisations offering to undertake TM44 Air Conditioning Reports. ACI Reports carry £5 million Professional Indemnity cover for their surveys, including £10 million Public Liability and £10 million Employers Liability cover. However, some Accreditation bodies are offering small companies and self-employed Assessors what is known as “pay per click” insurance. On the face of it this insurance is valid, although it has a limit as low as £50,000, and has no PL and EL sections to it, leaving the Employer at risk. What ACI Reports have uncovered is that the insurance is “paid for” as each Assessment is lodged with the Accreditation Body to be transferred to Landmark.

You must use only qualified personnel for installation, commissioning, service or other refrigerant handling activities on stationery RAC systems that use HFC or HCFC refrigerants. The qualifications that are acceptable in the interim period - CITB J01 and C&G 2078 - do not meet the new minimum standards set out in Commission Regulation 303/2008, but where individual hold these certificates issued before 9th March 2009 they are considered to be be valid until July 2011 to work on RAC containing F gases.
