Building Standards division recommend that Scottish Ministers approve certification schemes where individual members excercise the function of approved certifiers only when they are supported by an approved body.
Schemes must be operated by scheme providers that meet the criteria for appointment.
Scheme providers must keep a record of all certificates issued by scheme members.
Each certificate that is issued must be signed by both an approved certifier and the certification co-ordinator of an approved body.
