Basc, supported by the BDS, have proposed an additional clause to be added to the L2. They propose that not only have you to do an additional witnessed stalk every five years a push button test paper similar to CITB health and safety must be done again every five years. Test fees have still to be worked out. There is also a proposal that an AW call report a stalker seen to fall short of the required standard whereby that stalker may be required to resit level 2.
If these go ahead it is just another licence to print money. I am all for maintaining standards but why take a system that is severely flawed and add more flaws,
