The Electric Vehicle Consumer Code for Home Chargepoints (referred to as “EVCC” and “the Code”), sets the standards consumers can expect when purchasing an Electric Vehicle (EV) chargepoint from a member of the Code. These standards ensure consumers can be confident when making a purchasing decision, knowing that their chosen installer must comply fully with the Code from the way in which they advertise themselves, to the way in which they handle a complaint if things go wrong. The Code applies to EV chargepoints installed in domestic properties throughout the UK.
By becoming a Code member you can ensure your business stands out from the crowd!
Code members are businesses who supply and/or install domestic EV chargepoints. The Code sets out the standards members are expected to maintain, whether acting on their own or as a sub-contractor.
As well as a great set of Membership Benefits , the Code gives you the tools to offer your consumers the highest standards of consumer protection, giving them confidence when deciding who to contract with.
By choosing a Code member, you can expect to receive a high quality and fair service, and a product that is suitable for you and your lifestyle. Plus you get the peace of mind that if something goes wrong, we will be here to help.
Before making a purchase, you should check out the Consumer section of our website and make sure your chosen installer is a member of the Code.
