To reduce the bureaucratic and totally uneccessary burden on SMEs.
Local Government Authorities are making statement such as all personnel are to be CRB checked (usually Ebhanced) when working on schools and hospitals.
This results in the requirement to have such a clause included in the tendering packaged issued for contracts to buils schools and hospitals, with the end result that all construction, installation and fit out employees need to have CRB Enhanced check carried out before they can work on what is a construction site.
The cost of this is made even worse as each Authority and then Contract company will not recognise the CRB check carried out for a different project so the whole burden has to be repeated.
