More information

The anticipated increase in applications continues, as the scheme draws to a close. This increase is even greater at the end of a quarterly tariff period, particularly September and December 2018. This has led to an increase in the queue.

However, a new approach to triaging applications means that the more straight-forward applications are dealt with quickly and the queue reduces in subsequent months. This approach will continue over the coming months and, after closure on 31st March 2019, the queue should reduce month on month.

Of the remaining applications, a number are more complex, requiring additional work and, in some cases, audit, to confirm the evidence and subsequent accreditation. This means that these applications are taking longer to assess.
