Resources
Utilising CIGAs 27 years of industry knowledge and access to key technical resources, The IAA will continue to develop a range of technical guides, Best Practice Guides and installation manuals to assist you with installation, assessment, safety compliance and design across the range of insulation measures.

Only Members of The IAA who adopt the full compliance framework will be able to associate with the brand, giving Members a unique selling point and market opportunity and importantly ensuring you have the resources you need to get the job done ‘Right First Time’.
 
Industry voice
Proactive in supporting the industry whether through government or industry working groups, The IAA ensure the industry voice is heard, in addition to producing outcomes that are realistic for Members and the wider industry, as well as responding to press in times when industry support is needed as well as debunking misinformed messages to government.
 
Net Zero 2050
The government have declared a climate crisis and are committed to net zero carbon emissions by 2050 – domestic dwellings account for 17-19% of carbon emissions, only by tackling the energy efficiency of building fabric as a part of deep retrofit will we deliver Net Zero 2050. As a result, The IAA have created our own net zero pledge and urge you to join the many companies already signed up.


 
Consumer support and protection
Consumer protection ensures quality installations are carried out and providing assurance through appropriate guarantees as well as effective methods of complaint handling and dispute resolution.
 
Building on CIGAs TrustMark Scheme Provider status and effective complaint handling processes, Members will be in a strong position to evidence their commitment to outstanding customer service and support. Homeowner advice and guidance packs already exist for all measures.
 
Your personal portal
Once you are a Member you will receive login details to access your own personal portal. Through this portal you will be able to evidence compliance and development plans to assist in further business improvements whilst providing valuable information for stakeholders and funders on your performance and certification.
 
This portal also provides you access to your guarantees, ISA service and more.
 
CWISC
Those members of The IAA who install Cavity Wall Insulation will also benefit from membership of the Cavity Wall Insulation Self Certification (CWISC) and can have guarantee applications recorded with building control on their behalf in England and Wales.
