(c) the person holds a certificate from an accredited conformity assessment body certifying that the person provides the additional services in accordance with the recognised supplementary code referred to in paragraph (b),

(d) the application complies with any requirements imposed by a determination under section 51, and

(e) the person pays any fee required to be paid by a determination under section 52(1).

(2) The Secretary of State must amend the note to record that the person also provides the additional services referred to in subsection (1) in accordance with the recognised supplementary code referred to in that subsection.

(3) For the purposes of subsection (1)(c), a certificate is to be ignored if—

(a) it has expired in accordance with its terms,

(b) it has been withdrawn by the body that issued it, or

(c) subsection (4) applies.

(4) This subsection applies if—

(a) the recognised supplementary code to which the certificate relates has been revised since the certificate was issued,

(b) the certificate was issued before the revision to the supplementary code took effect, and

(c) the supplementary code (as revised) provides—

(i) that certificates issued before the time the revision takes effect are required to be ignored, or

(ii) that such certificates are to be ignored from a date, or from the end of a period, specified in the code and that date has passed or that period has elapsed.”—(Sir John Whittingdale.)

This amendment provides for a person to add services to their supplementary note in the DVS register and requires the Secretary of State to amend the note to record that a person is registered in respect of the additional services.
