WHO WE ARE

What is
HICS?

The Home Improvement Consumer Protection Scheme (HICS) is a leading consumer protection organisation that gives consumers confidence when choosing accredited installers for their home improvement project.

How does HICS protect consumers?

HICS is designed to ensure that traders operate to a high standard.

Whether you are an installer providing home improvement services or a customer looking to obtain a quote for home improvements such as kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, double glazing, conservatories, solar panels, renewable energy products and most types of home improvements, you should contact HICS for more information.

The protection offered by HICS, which includes comprehensive insurance backed guarantees (for silver, gold and platinum members) and first class mediation services (for all levels of membership), ensures consumers are protected before, during and after their installation.

This level of protection helps provide consumers with the trust, confidence and peace of mind that their installation will be fit for purpose and carried out professionally; and they can be safe in the knowledge that should they encounter any problems, HICS’ expert mediation team will be on hand to resolve any disputes.

HICS is approved by Government under the Alternative Dispute Resolution for Consumer Disputes (Competent Authorities and Information) Regulations 2015.
