The Federation of Master Builders

Membership critieria

Before becoming a Master Builder all new members must meet our membership criteria as well as passing our vetting and inspection process. 

We will carry out a range of checks including your trading history, insurance, credit history and director checks for limited companies. 

Please note: Any FMB member must have a minimum of 12 months trading history, have public liability insurance and be subject to our vetting criteria.

If you would like to know more about our standards and discuss whether you qualify please get in touch with our friendly team on 0330 333 7777!

Our inspection partner, an independent organisation accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service, will also carry out an independent inspection of your work on behalf of the FMB before your membership can be activated. That way we can ensure that Master Builders remain committed to the highest possible quality standards.

Members of the FMB agree to comply with the Code of Conduct upon joining and every time they renew their membership. The Code of Conduct for Members (PDF) lays down the minimum standard practices expected of our Members in the construction industry.
