OFTEC - UK

The Oil Firing Technical Association (OFTEC) is a trade association that represents the interests of oil fired appliance, oil storage tank and associated equipment manufacturers in the UK. We work with over 90 training centres that offer education and competency assessment to heating professionals and we raise awareness with consumers about the advantages of using liquid heating fuels for heating and/or cooking.

We also operate a UKAS accredited registration scheme for heating professionals that have been independently trained and assessed as being competent to install or maintain oil fired equipment and other heating technologies. There are approximately 9,500 individual technicians registered with us that support approximately 1.5m liquid fuelled installations in homes across the UK.

The principle domestic heating liquid fuel in the UK is kerosene – not gas-oil as used in most other European countries.
