CompEx Certification Body Statement re: Covid-19 Situation UPDATED as of 13th May 2020

Advice first Published 17 March 2020 

Updated  27th March 2020 

Latest update 13th May 2020 @ 15:30hrs


Further to our previous announcement please see our revised advice and guidance for Employers and Candidates in respect of the expiry of CompEx certificates.


Following the recent period of inactivity for competency assessments at centres due to the Covid-19 situation we are now announcing a further revised Certificate Extension Process.


Our advice to Employers with Candidates where certificates have or are due to expire is to conduct a risk assessment against the candidate’s competency to cover their obligations for utilising them beyond their certificate expiry date and until a new certificate is obtained. We recognise the exceptional circumstances that industry faces and consider that mitigation in this respect can normally be achieved by ensuring that a Refresher Course has been formally booked with a CompEx Training Centre.


Internationally the outbreak is at different stages. To that end, the CompEx Certification Body remains open and will continue to provide administration support to CompEx Training Centres, Employers and Candidates. We have also made provision to enable our team to work from home. However, we would urge Employers and Candidates to contact their preferred Training Centres in the first instance. However, we recognise that some Centres may be shut and have limited capacity to respond to enquiries.
