In January 2014 the three regions have created an association serving as a single certifying body in Belgium called “RESCert”. The association is responsible for the development and coordination of the certification requests from applicants of the Flemish, Walloon and Brussels-Capital region. The association RESCert provides certification for six technologies in the biomass, solar, geothermal and heat pump sectors. Installers who successfully participated in a training programme in one of the acknowledged training centres can apply for a certificate of competence from RESCert.
