Prior Notice: Water Regulations (England and Wales) and Water Byelaws (Scotland and NI)

We’re working on updating the above training courses. The industry has agreed upon a new set of Learning Outcomes which will come into effect on 1st April 2023. BPEC intends to have a combined course that will be approved by WIAPS/TAPS/APLUS/Watermark/Scottish Water/NI Water (submission/approval pending).

How this affects centres:

  • The existing courses will cease to be recognised after 31st March 2023. Therefore, any claims after that date will not be certified and will not be accepted by the Water Undertaker’s approved contractor schemes.
  • Centres should ensure any delivery on or after 1st April 2023 is to the new version.
  • Centres are advised to plan their delivery accordingly – please do not deliver the current versions unless they can be completed by 31st March 2023.

Centres will be notified as soon as the new materials/courses have been approved.
