Association of Professional Independent Chimney Sweeps

APICS was formed to keep our members independent and to set the standards sweeps must reach to become a member, improving the knowledge and safety of chimney sweeps and customers across the country, thereby giving customers a better service and a name they can trust.

APICS is a friendly organisation, recognising that chimney sweeps are independent and should be allowed to get on with their daily work without interference.

A message regarding Covid-19

APICS recognises its members will be experiencing some difficult choices due to the COVID 19 Corona Virus pandemic and its effect on normal working patterns. As a member- led organisation we are acting swiftly to do everything we can to support our members. We have already cancelled planned training events and our AGM in June and having reviewed the situation can now go further to support our members.

All fully paid APICS members, who have already paid their annual subscriptions for 2020, should contact the office by email [email protected] with their bank details for a 50% refund which will be processed as soon as possible.

Thank You

In order for a sweep to become an APICS sweep, they must take and pass an assessment process. Thus we can be assured our members practice and maintain the highest standards.
