Construction Skills Certification Scheme

Posted in: General News

A Scottish Procurement Policy (SPPN) note has been issued to advise public sector buyers of a new policy in relation to Scottish Government contracts for construction projects, that all future construction contracts should include a clause requiring that all on-site staff are accredited under the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) or equivalent scheme.

Other public bodies are also asked to adopt the clause in their terms and conditions of contract.
