OFTEC is the oil firing technical association representing the oil heating & cooking industry in the UK.  The organisation was formed in 1991 and replaced the former domestic oil burner equipment testing association (DOBETA) an organisation formed following the forced split in the early 1970’s.

OFTEC is a trade association that regulates and ensures the competence of companies registered and trained to OFTEC standards.  This accreditation gives consumers the reassurance that registered companies and their installers meet the required standards to be accredited to OFTEC’s trade association to install domestic oil-fired appliances for heating or cooking, installing oil tanks or other equipment associated with oil-fired appliances & commissioning and servicing oil-fired boilers or cookers and associated equipment.
