Consultations 2015

Proposal for changes to supervision

In May 2015 the Board launched a review of registration and licensing requirements. One of the questions asked as part of the initial round of consultation was what changes (if any) should be made to supervision. As a result, The Board is proposing some changes to the Gazette notices in relation to supervision. Consultation closed 20 November 2015.


Proposal for a new form of continuing professional development

In May 2015 the Board launched a review of registration and licensing requirements. One of the questions asked as part of the initial round of consultation was what changes (if any) should be made to the CPD scheme. The feedback the Board received strongly supported changes to CPD. The Board, in consultation with a CPD stakeholder reference group, has developed an alternative model for CPD with a view that, if adopted, the Board would implement this new model with effect from 1 April 2016.

During this consultation we would like your views on the proposed model of CPD and on the fee that would be charged for the delivery of it. Once the Board has considered your feedback it will decide whether to proceed or not. If it does proceed then a gazette notice will be adopted implementing the model.

A form for telling us your views is attached to this consultation document, or alternatively you can make a submission online. Consultation closed 16 October 2015.

Consultation closed 16 October 2015.

Every three years the Plumbers Gasfitters and Drainlayers Board (Board) reviews its fees. The Board is undertaking a review this year that will result in fees being introduced in time for the licence year that starts on 1 April 2016. Earlier this year the Board held an initial consultation to hear your ideas. The Board has considered that feedback and has developed a detailed proposal.

The Board will make a final decision on the fees at its Board meeting on 27 October 2015.
