Reissuing of Certificates

BICSc has recently seen updates in the training and education we provide, moving on from COPC to CPSS to the most recent version CPSS 2.0.

Because of these updates, changes in health safety and increasing knowledge within the cleaning industry, previous versions of BICSc training schemes are not current. Due to these factors the previous versions do not reflect the standard BICSc currently train too. Therefore we are unable to reissue lost or damaged certificates.   

BICSc are only able to reissue CPSS version 1 certificates from February 2011, anything older than this date will not be able to be reissued. When applying for a new certificate please ensure that your candidate or certificate number to hand  as you will need to provide these as a form of identity.

The Federation of Awarding Bodies (FAB) says:

“No minimum or maximum time limits other than what local policy advise'.

If the individual cannot supply sufficient information such as candidate or certificate number etc. then there can be no reissue, as candidate cannot prove they received the certificate in the first instance.

If you require any further information on this contact the Customer Service department on +44 (0) 1604 678 711.
