ECA Guarantee of Work Scheme

The ECA Guarantee – A free benefit for ECA Members

The ECA Guarantee of Work provides a free benefit to the clients of ECA Members. If, once completed, works covered are discovered to be non-compliant with relevant technical standards, the works will be reinstated to be compliant with the relevant standards.

The ECA Guarantee of Work Scheme automatically applies to all Members’ work and, subject to its terms and conditions, removes the need to enter into an insurance-backed ‘warranty’ contract. 

The Guarantee of Work Scheme is Part P and TrustMark compliant.

An ECA Guarantee of Works Certificate (including terms and conditions) is available for Members to download to issue to their customers.

Features of the ECA Guarantee – which is FREE and AUTOMATICALLY APPLICABLE
