Further provision about registration as a service provider or manager

Section 19: Applications by registered persons

141.Section 19 enables registered service providers and registered managers to apply: to change the conditions of their registration (for example to change the number of people they are registered to accommodate); voluntarily to cancel their registration (for example, if they plan to close or sell the business); or to amend or lift any suspension of their registration (for example, if they believe they can demonstrate that they are once again complying with any relevant requirements).

142.It is not, however, possible for a service provider to apply to change any mandatory condition imposed as a result of regulations made under section 13 requiring him to appoint a registered manager (subsection (1)(a)). Neither is it possible for either a service provider or a manager to apply to voluntarily cancel their registration if the Commission has given notice that it intends to, or has decided to, cancel it already (subsections (2) and (3)).

143.If the Commission decides to grant an application to change conditions of registration or to amend or lift a suspension, the Commission must write to the applicant to inform the applicant of its decision, setting out how the conditions or suspension have changed and, if relevant, issue a new certificate of registration (subsections (5) and (6)).
