To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what the estimated time period is for an energy inspector (a) to undergo a Criminal Records Bureau check and (b) to be accredited. (140860)

A fully completed application for a criminal records check for a domestic energy assessor is currently being processed within seven to 10 working days by Disclosure Scotland.

It is the trained assessor’s responsibility to ensure that all required documentation is provided to the accreditation scheme they have applied to. Due to this, the process varies in duration. Required documentation includes: certificate of qualification from awarding body, completed criminal records check, and proof of suitable operating insurance.
