Posted on: 27th June 2016

Good news for the Community Equipment Code of Practice Scheme (CECOPS)

On 10 June 2016 CECOPS announced that their application to become an official information source approved by CQC had been accepted. Read more on the CECOPS website

CQC says: "The CQC will work with CECOPS to ascertain how best to incorporate information from the scheme. Schemes will require written agreement with the participating services to permit that the results of assessments can be shared with the CQC. In the interim, any publically available information (for example CECOPS accreditation status) will be taken into account in the CQC inspection methodology."

CECOPS CEO, Brian Donnelly, says: "This is fantastic news and a great achievement for CECOPS and for organisations working with us. We are glad CQC see the merits of our standards and assessment processes. Going through the very thorough CQC application process has enhanced the service we offer. We believe this further endorsement will enhance engagement with our credible scheme."

We're proud to be working towards the 47 CECOPS standards.
