This circular sets out the new terms of authorisation and accreditation for Competent Persons Schemes in Wales.

Competent Persons (CP) Schemes allow individuals and enterprises to self-certify that their work complies with the Building Regulations.

The new conditions were developed following a public consultation in 2009/10 (England and Wales).

The Department for Communities and Local Government introduced new conditions of authorisation and accreditation for all CP Schemes from 6 June 2012 which only apply in England.

We have decided to adopt the same terms of authorisation and accreditation. The new terms will apply in Wales from 25 February 2013.
