How apply to the accreditation scheme

Businesses need to submit details of their COVID-19 secure systems including:

  • current written COVID-19 secure risk assessments
  • internal COVID-19 related procedure notes, such as management checks that the risk assessment is being followed and cleaning schedules etc
  • records of COVID-19 specific staff training and relevant protection measures
To apply to join or if you have any questions, email us

What happens after you apply to the scheme

We'll contact your business to assess the details you've submitted. Then we'll do an on-site inspection, to confirm that you're implementing the COVID-19 procedures you've told us about.

If your business meets the requirements, you'll get an accreditation door/window sign stating you're COVID-19 compliant. Your business can also publicise accreditation on your website.
