Amend, suspend or revoke accreditation

This section has information on amendment, suspension or revocation of accreditation.

A letter of amendment, suspension or revocation of the accreditation for an individual or an organisation could be issued.

When a breach of accreditation has been detected by Trading Standards, the Client Manager may amend, suspend or revoke the accreditation of the organisation and/or individual(s).

For example, when the organisation:

  • has failed to meet all the requirements for accreditation prescribed by the Regulations made under the Act;
  • has failed to comply with any condition imposed by Trading Standards in respect of that person's accreditation;
  • has failed to exercise or perform the powers, functions, or duties of an accredited person to a satisfactory standard; or
  • has not resolved a non compliance previously raised by Trading Standards.

For example, when the individual:

  • has failed to comply with any condition of accreditation imposed by Trading Standards; or
  • has failed to exercise or perform the powers, functions, or duties of an accredited person to a satisfactory standard.

The letter of amendment, suspension or revocation will be issued to the Director of the accredited organisation.
