As part of an ongoing process to introduce competition in to the water services market, we operate the Water Industry Registration Scheme (WIRS) on behalf of water utility companies.
The Water Industry Registration Scheme - Accredited Entity (WIRSAE) has been developed to allow companies, who fulfil the scheme requirements, to become registered as accredited WIRSAE Providers. WIRSAE Providers are referred to as Accredited Entities in the Wholesale Retail Code.

Benefits of WIRS and WIRSAE accreditation
Accreditation under the scheme will provide the service provider with the following benefits:
accreditation recognised by all water utilities and Water UK (WIRS)
accreditation recognised by wholesalers who allow work undertaken by Accredited Entities (WIRSAE)
independent assessment and registration process
assignment of an accreditation mark which will represent the achievement of a high technical, quality and safety standard.
