Learn the difference between CHAS membership and accreditation

Why should I gain CHAS Accreditation?

Even though having CHAS Membership is great and gives you access to all the benefits, it is CHAS Accreditation that will demonstrate to our 1000+ clients that your policies and procedures are up-to-date and comply with current legislation. Your information will be on a central portal so you will be visible to 1000+ clients for more job opportunities.

How do I become accredited?

The payment of your CHAS Membership is the gateway to achieving accreditation status. To become CHAS Accredited, you will need to submit an application on the contractor portal and you will go through a detailed desktop assessment. Once you have submitted your application, an assessor will be assigned and they will assess it. Once you have passed, you will receive an electronic accreditation certificate and approval letter. A physical copy of the accreditation certificate and stickers for your work vehicles will follow shortly after in the post.

When do I renew my CHAS membership and accreditation?

The renewal dates for membership and accreditation may be different, depending on the date you registered for your membership and the date you gained accreditation. Your membership and your accreditation status both need to be renewed separately, a year after registration and accreditation took place. If, for example, you become accredited a few months after joining, you will need to renew your accreditation a year after your accreditation date. Your membership date will always remain the same date, your accreditation date will expire one year from the approval date.
