Andrew joined HETAS in 2009 with an engineering background in quality management. In his previous role as Head of Quality & Certification, Andrew worked proactively across HETAS and Woodsure to ensure the schemes we offer to industry are appropriate and maintain compliance with our UKAS Certification Body status. At a strategic level, Andrew helped to influence and shape areas of policy, legislation review and standards development that impact our industry, working alongside government bodies including DLUHC, DEFRA, BEIS, and other NGOs.
Andrew was instrumental in the development of our Ready to Burn scheme, the Biomass Maintenance Schemes and the implementation of new contracts such as the administration of the Biomass Suppliers List. Andrew now supports Woodsure in a consultancy role and also sits on a number of industry committees including the Biomass Suppliers List, BSI standards committees for the development of UK and European standards, The Wood Heat Association, MCS Working Groups and UK ENplus committees.
