About OFTEC's Strategy
OFTEC is the Oil Firing Technical Association. We represent and promote the oil heating and cooking industry in the UK and the Republic of Ireland and establish common technical standards for oil fired heating and cooking appliances and oil storage tanks.
OFTEC’s strategy is to support those involved in the oil fired heating and cooking industry through a number of initiatives that include running and managing:
- A not-for-profit trade association
- A licensed competent persons scheme for technicians working with liquid fuel, solid fuel and renewable heating technologies in the UK and the Republic of Ireland.
- OFTEC Direct, an online/catalogue store for heating technicians
OFTEC’s vision is to be the leading trade association for the liquid fuel heating and cooking sector, and technician registration body for liquid fuel, Solid fuel and renewable heating technologies.
We do this by driving innovation in the heating and cooking industry and providing solutions for OFTEC members, registrants and consumers.
