The non-profit organisation Qualibat was established in 1949 by the Ministry of Construction in order to assess the activities and professional competence of companies working in the construction sector. Qualibat does not provide training programmes for installers; however it grants qualifications to professionals of the building trade, including installers of renewable energy devices. The qualification attribution is conditioned to the acceptation of an application and to the satisfaction of legal and administrative, technical as well as financial requirements. Once the company is certified, it shall lend itself to control procedures approximately every two years.

Qualibat grants certification to the professional installers of photovoltaic, solar thermal, geothermal and biomass devices.
