All organisations operating within the highway electrical sector must be registered to the Highway Electrical Registration Scheme (HERS), the scheme works to ensure all organisations operating within the sector are fully compliant with NHSS8.
The register below shows the current status of registration for all those organisations registered to HERS.
All organisations with a green tick are compliant to the best of our knowledge, although clients and potential clients must make their own enquires as to their suitability and compliance. An amber tick means that the organisation will become non-compliant (expiring documents) within 90 days unless corrective actions are taken. Organisations with a red tick are non-compliant in one or more aspects (organisations will go red 30 days after a document expires).
Organisations showing as potential will be listed for 12 months from first registration application date allowing them to progress to a fully compliant HERS registered organisation. After 12 months organisations will be archived from this list until they are fully compliant with the scheme.
Currently, organisations may become non-compliant for the following:
1. ISO9001 – Expiry of their ISO9001 certificate (where this applies)
2. HERS – No organisational HERS certificate (expired or not issued)
3. Employees – No employees with valid registrations (expired or not registered)
4. Audits – Actions outstanding for more than six months following the last audit at any contracting office (this will be implemented manually to start with and thereafter will be dealt with automatically through software revisions)
Anyone considering using an organisation listed here should first establish the current validity of their scope and registration by reference to NHSS8 Appendix L and by reviewing:
1. Their BS EN ISO 9001 certificate extended to cover NHSS8 (where BS EN ISO 9001 is required)
2. The dated HERS Certificate (and HERS logo where this exists)
3. The existence of valid employee HERS cards
4. The existence of employee portfolios
5. Their internal audits and site audits
6. HERS third-party audits carried out by the HEA
7. Audit Action Plans
