CompEx Certification Body Statement re: Covid-19 Situation UPDATED as of 18th September 2020

Advice first Published 17 March 2020 

Updated  27th March 2020; 13th May 2020 & 1st July 2020

Latest update 18th September 2020 @ 20:00hrs


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

Please note that some CompEx Centres have now re-opened for courses to enable candidates to attend and renew certificates and the CompEx Certification Body has re-commenced printing certificates.




Following the latest announcement by the UK Government, we are issuing further advice to Employers and Candidates. We are now announcing a further update to our Certificate Extension Process.


Our advice remains that 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 continue to 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 still 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 still be shut and have limited capacity to respond to enquiries.
